Nice PR stunt.

I understand that it's test launch and they don't want to launch anything very expensive, but sending some cheap amateur satellites, retroreflector, or just polished metal sphere that can be used as communications satellite to the orbit around the moon would have been better.

There's nothing to say they can't also do some of that.
