Abstract

TDuring the past decades, assessing the impact of technological project and related engineering has long been paid attention. The objective of this research is to investigate technological project and related engineering’s social impact through public perspective. The present article investigated the social impact of China’s Chang E Lunar Probe project by using Social Impact Assessment (SIA) methods, resulting from a research study conducted in 2012. SIA is a collective of the systematic methods used to investigate the influence of engineering, project or policy and to present their potential social impacts. A survey from public respondents indicated that public spoke highly of Chang E Probe on the whole. Furthermore, a factor analysis of the perspective of public perspective towards Chang E Lunar Probe project has discovered such impact were mainly assessed in four dimensions by public, these impacts were military impact, political impact, public support and educational impact. From the results obtained so far, it revealed that public perspective towards the political impact of the Chang E Probe varies from each other but unified when they assess Chang E’s military impact, meanwhile student’s perspective towards the educational impact of Chang E Probe was largely different from other publics.
