China's First Moon Rover Sets Record for Longest Stay[Nov 02, 2015]
China's first lunar rover, Yutu, has been operating on the moon for almost two years, setting the record for the longest stay by a rover, according to a Chinese lunar probe scientist. Yutu was deployed and landed on the moon via China's Chang'e-3 lunar probe in 2013, staying longer than the Soviet Union's 1970 moon rover Lunokhod 1, which spent 11 months on the moon.
A delegation of Chinese Academy Sciences (CAS) has donated a set of Water Quality Analyzers to Sri Lanka to aid the studies on the Chronic Kidney Disease (CHD) that is affecting the island nation's farming population. The equipment worth Rs. 22 million were donated during a meeting of the Chinese delegation with the Sri Lankan officials in Colombo recently.
