The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) on Tuesday confirmed that China has successfully received data from the newly launched high-resolution multi-mode imaging satellite. The satellite, launched on July 3, is a civil-use optical remote-sensing satellite with a resolution up to the sub-meter level. According to the Aerospace Information Research Institute under the CAS, China's remote sensing satellite ground station in Beijing's Miyun District first tracked and received the downlink data on July 3.
Chinese researchers have found that the southeastern region of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau went through great climatic and vegetation changes from desert to forest due to a topography shift 44 million years ago. The research article, by the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was recently published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters.
In a significant astronomical breakthrough, scientists have detected the neutral hydrogen line emission from extragalactic galaxies for the first time with the help of the world's largest radio telescope, which could help enrich the understanding of dark matter.
Paleontologists from China and Britain have unveiled the colors of diverse insects dating back 100 million years to the Mesozoic Era. A microscopy analysis of 35 fossil specimens preserved in mid-Cretaceous amber found most of the insects are at least partially brightly colored.
Chinese researchers from the Chengdu Institute of Biology (CIB) under the Chinese Academy of Sciences have said an Aeschynanthus monetaria plant found on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in 2015 is a rare species that had not been seen for more than 100 years. The species exists only in Tibet Autonomous Region's Medog County. It was one of the significant achievements of the country's second comprehensive scientific expedition to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
