China Finishes Construction of World’s Largest Radio Telescope[Jul 03, 2016]

After more than five years of construction, the world’s largest single-dish radio telescope is finally getting ready to open its eye. On July 3, 2016, with the installation of the last of its 4,450 reflecting panels – equivalent to the size of 30 soccer fields – the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST) is counting down to seeing its first light in two to three months’ time.

China Launches SJ-10 Retrievable Space Science Probe[Apr 06, 2016]

China put into space a retrievable scientific research satellite in the early hours of Wednesday in a fresh bid to aid scientists back on Earth in studying microgravity and space life science. In a cloud of brown smoke, the satellite, SJ-10, roared into the air on the back of a Long March 2-D rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern China's gobi desert.

Chinese Astronomers Offer New Insight on Star Formation[Jan 29, 2016]

Chinese astronomers have discovered newborn stars arising in clusters as they "adopt" interstellar gases, providing a new explanation for how stars form. Astronomers have long thought clusters could only form stars in bulk at once in the first millions of years of their "lives". However, recent discoveries of multiple star populations at different ages in clusters have made astronomers question the conventional theory of star birth.
