Chinese and Japanese scientists announced on Friday that they have found "unequivocal evidence" of the existence of PeVatrons, the most powerful cosmic accelerator known to date, in our Milky Way galaxy, but exactly what PeVatron is and how it works still remains to be discovered.
Chinese researchers from the Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have studied squat lobsters in four seamounts around ocean trenches in the tropical West Pacific and identified 11 new species.
China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), the world's largest single-dish and most sensitive radio telescope, will officially open to the world starting Wednesday. Astronomers worldwide can visit the official website to submit their applications for observations.
China is ramping up efforts to improve the ecology of its major waters, especially the Yangtze River and the Yellow River. Last month, China released its newly adjusted list of wild animals under State priority conservation, which indicates that the protection of Yangtze finless porpoise, an endangered species in the Yangtze River, has been upgraded from the second level to the highest level.
Dr. Dambaru Ballab Kattel is an associate professor at the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research (ITPCAS) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. His work focuses on mountain climate system as well as climate change adaptation for local communities in the Third Pole region. Just recently, Dr. Dambaru Ballab Kattel was invited to participate in the symposium held by Premier Li Keqiang for representatives of foreign experts working in China, before the Spring Festival, or the Chinese New Year.
Over the last five years, I witnessed the growth of China particularly in science and technology. Fully equipped labs and large research funds provided an opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research. I also got the chance to attend international conferences in the field. At my working unit, everyone was welcoming. I was the first CAS-PIFI candidate who joined this institute. Later, many other Asian and European people joined; some completed their work and some are still working.
I am honored to have the CAS President's International Fellowship for Special Experts, which offers unique possibilities for foreign scientists to establish and foster collaboration with their colleagues in Chinese research institutions, and in my particular case it was of central importance for establishing first contacts during short visits to finally realize long-term research collaboration.
