China Continue Funding Science Museums for Free Entrance[May 11, 2018]

China will allocate 545 million yuan (about 85.5 million U.S. dollars) in 2018 to support the scrapping of entrance fees for selected science museums. The money will ensure entry into selected science museums across the country free-of-charge. China started to support science museums opening their doors for free in 2015.


Planned Supercomputer Would Be 10 Times Faster Than Today's No 1[May 10, 2018]

The National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen plans to build a next-generation supercomputer that will be 10 times faster than the world's current speed champion. The supercomputer will be "exascale", meaning that it will be capable of making a quintillion (1 followed by 18 zeros) calculations per second, much faster than the current No 1 supercomputer, Sunway TaihuLight, Wang said. The new supercomputer is expected to be developed by 2020.
