Chinese scientists on Friday produced a steady field of 45.22 Tesla, the highest steady magnetic field by a working magnet in the world.
The first report on a solar energetic particle (SEP) event seen by China's Tianwen-1 spacecraft's Mars energetic particle analyzer (MEPA) was unveiled by <EM>The Astrophysical Journal Letters</EM> on July 26, 2022. MEPA, China's first scientific payload for studying the interplanetary and near-Mars space radiation environment, was launched in July 2020 alongside the Tianwen-1 spacecraft to begin an exploration mission.
Chinese researchers have made a breakthrough in the treatment of cancer through immunotherapy, identifying a particular hormone receptor as a potential target for the treatment, the University of Science and Technology of China said. The receptor, MC5R, acts with a hormone called α-MSH, which is produced by the pituitary gland, to promote the growth of tumors, according to a paper published in the journal <EM>Science</EM>.
China has received data from its newly launched terrestrial ecosystem carbon monitoring satellite, scientists in charge of receiving the satellite data said. The satellite was carried into space on Thursday by a Long March-4B rocket from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province.
