Scientists from the Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) are conducting experiments on Tianzhou-1, which launched Thursday, to study the effects of micro-gravity on embryonic stem cell proliferation and differentiation...
China Makes Progress in Deep Sea Expedition[Mar 24, 2017]
China made several breakthroughs in deep sea exploration as a team sailed 7,929 nautical miles to explore the trenches in the west Pacific Ocean, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) said Thursday. The 68-day expedition made China the first to obtain 10,000-meter-deep artificial seismic profile data with a domestic ocean bottom seismograph, at the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, the CAS said in a statement.
China Acquires World's Deepest Seismic Profile Data[Mar 07, 2017]
The Institute of Geology and Geophysics completed two 10,000-meter-deep marine artificial seismic profile data acquisitions with its Chinese-made Ocean Bottom Seismometers (OBS) at the bottom of the Mariana Trench on February 28, 2017, and China has become the world's first country to acquire 10,000-meter-deep marine artificial seismic profile data, Xinhua News Agency reported on Sunday.
Monkeys Show Spontaneous Mirror Self-Recognition After Learning Precise Instrumental Mirror Use[Feb 14, 2017]
Testing mirror self-recognition (MSR) has become the main approach to examining the existence of self-recognition in animals, and only a few species have passed this test. A recent study conducted by researchers at Dr. GONG Neng's team from the Non-human Primate Facility of the Institute of Neuroscience of Chinese Academy of Sciences demonstrated that monkeys showed spontaneous MSR behaviors after learning precise visual-proprioceptive association for mirror images.
Chinese scientists announced on Jan. 15 that they have developed a new bright VUV FEL light source, the Dalian Coherent Light Source (DCLS), which can deliver world’s brightest FEL light in an energy range from 8 to 24 eV, making it unique of the same kind that only operates in the VUV region.
