We present the main features of the project of the detector of space radiation of an ultrahigh energy of over 1022 eV a board the Moon satellite. The urgency of the problem and the possibility of realization of such aggregate are shown. Strength of the radio signal caused by the current of excess electron cascade and S -electrons is quite sufficient for a power threshold 22 of 1022 eV in an orbit at 1000 km. It is found that the most suitable frequency range is 50‒100 MHz. Rough speed of the account will make 150 events in a year in this case in this case.
