China Draws Digital 3D Topographic Map of Antarctic Seabed[Apr 17, 2017]

Chinese scientists have created a three-dimensional, digital topographic map of the Antarctic seabed using data collected during a recent expedition. The map was made on the expedition in Antarctica using multi-beam sonar. With 80 gigabytes of data, the researchers were able to compile a high-definition map that can be used in Antarctic research or for navigation.

Chinese Scientists Build Soft Robotic Fish[Apr 13, 2017]

Chinese scientists from eastern China's Zhejiang Province have created a soft robotic fish with no motor and a fast speed. The 9.3-centimeter-long fish weighs 90 grams and has an electric controller at the core, fins made of silicone, and a silicone body and tail. The findings were published in the academic journal Scientific Advances earlier this month.

Nation's First Antarctic Airfield May See Building Begin by 2018[Apr 12, 2017]

Progress continues on China's first airfield in Antarctica, with site selection and a survey completed and plans set for construction to begin as early as year's end. The airfield, near China's Zhongshan Station, will be able to handle fixed-wing aircraft. Specialists from the nation's 33rd Antarctic expedition recently surveyed a 3-square-kilometer area selected for the airfield.
