China has achieved a major breakthrough in the building of its next-generation neutrino detector, Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO), with the completion of the detector's main structure, some 700 meters underground in Jiangmen City, south China's Guangdong Province.
Pakistan looks forwards to China-Pak joint scientific research for the building of Green China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The Pakistani Ambassador to China Moin ul Haque made the remarks when met with Huang Wenjiang, a Research Fellow of the Aerospace Information Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and Zhou Jinfeng, Secretary-General of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) at the Embassy of Pakistan in Beijing on June 20.
Chinese researchers have recently reported the discovery of a new bacterial transfer RNA (tRNA) species, which can help the synthesis of antibiotics, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
Chinese scientists found for the first time high-pressure minerals in the lunar regolith samples brought back by the Chang'e-5 lunar probe. The discovery provides important evidence of the presence of impact ejecta near the craters in the sampling area of Chang'e-5, which was previously determined through the analysis of remote sensing data. Chinese researchers from the Institute of Geochemistry Chinese Academy of Sciences found for the first time fragments of seifertite and stishovite, minerals formed from silicon dioxide at high temperatures and pressures, in the samples of lunar regolith. The sample also contained silicon dioxide and silica glass. This marks the first time for seifertite to be found in the samples from outside the Earth.
What originally attracted me to study science was a desire to understand the world as it is. Science is universal and it is that universality that allows us as scientists to be able to collaborate with colleagues around the world. The renowned physicist and chemist, and a personal role model of Diana Czuchry, Marie Curie, stated: "After all, science is essentially international, and it is only through lack of the historical sense that national qualities have been attributed to it."
Plant scientist LIANG Lin develops cryopreservation technology to store seeds and plant tissues at liquid-nitrogen temperature to conserve biodiversity. Here at the Germplasm Bank of Wild Species of China at the Kunming Institute of Botany, we want to preserve the seeds of as many wild plants as possible from across China’s vast land area. I work on developing the best techniques to freeze plant seeds and tissues at ultracold temperatures, to maintain their viability for years.
"As a final note, I have some words of advice to my fellow international students: develop your language skills, learn about the Chinese culture, build support networks (research and social), get your supervisor on your side, and remember that your studies should be more than just a learning experience but also an enjoyable one, If things don't go as planned, don't give up just yet; try to fix it and remember that time always brings change," said Lukman.
