China's Unmanned Submersible "Hailong III" Dives to 4,266 Meters Under Sea[Apr 08, 2018]

China's unmanned submersible "Hailong III" dived 4,266 meters below the sea surface in the western Pacific Ocean late Wednesday while conducting a 4,500-meter level deep water test. The submersible entered the water from its mothership Dayang Yihao (Ocean No. 1), a Chinese scientific research ship, at 6:30 p.m. Beijing time (1030 GMT). It reached the depth of 4,266 meters some 174 minutes later, and returned to the deck of the mothership early on Thursday.

Ship Being Built to Dig Far into Earth's Mantle[Apr 04, 2018]

China is developing an advanced scientific drilling ship capable of reaching about 10 kilometers below the seabed that will allow scientists to explore what truly happens in the Earth's mantle. If all goes well, the vessel will be launched around 2021. Its service will allow people to fulfill the long-held dream of seeing the mantle and extensively boost the nation's research on geosciences.

Gravitational Wave Project Makes Public Debut[Apr 03, 2018]

Progress on the Tianqin project, a Chinese research project to detect gravitational waves, was revealed to the public on Monday. The Guangzhou-based Sun Yat-sen University started the Tianqin project in July 2015. Research began in a bomb shelter under the Yujia mountain in Central China's Hubei Province. And the research on gravitation commenced in 1983 when Luo first joined the lab in the shelter.
