China Launches Third Prototype Exascale Computer[Oct 23, 2018]

China has launched a third prototype exascale computing machine, the next-generation supercomputer. The Shuguang exascale computer is expected to be put into operation in national supercomputing centers in Shanghai and Shenzhen. An exascale computer is able to execute a quintillion calculations per second.


China-made Large Amphibious Aircraft Completes First Water Takeoff[Oct 22, 2018]

China's independently-developed large amphibious aircraft AG600 completed its first water takeoff and landing in the city of Jingmen in the central province of Hubei. The AG600, a large-scale special-purpose civil aircraft designed to assist with forest firefighting and water rescues, is the third member of China's "large aircraft family" following the large freighter Y-20 and large passenger aircraft C919.

Scientists Make First High-temperature Single-molecule Magnet[Oct 22, 2018]

An international team of scientists from Britain, China and Finland produced a new molecule-based magnetic information storage material, which might be used to produce high-density digital storage media and parts of microprocessors in quantum computers. The study published in the latest journal Science showed that they successfully designed and synthesized the first single-molecule magnet (SMM) with a blocking temperature above 77 K, the boiling point of liquid nitrogen, which is both cheap and readily available.

China-Iceland Arctic Science Observatory Inaugurated in Northern Iceland[Oct 22, 2018]

The China-Iceland Arctic Science Observatory was inaugurated and officially began operation on in northern Iceland. The observatory is a joint project by Chinese and Icelandic research institutions to further the scientific understanding on Arctic phenomena. Currently, it can accommodate 15 people in a work/live facility for research on various scientific studies, such as aurora, atmosphere, glacier and remote sensing.

Mainland, HK Cooperate on Space Telescope to Search for Dark Matter[Oct 19, 2018]

Scientists and space engineers from Chinese mainland and Hong Kong are working together on a space telescope to search for the mysterious dark matter in galaxy clusters about 300 million light years away. The space telescope, with a detector like the eye of a lobster, has been named HKU No.1, and is expected to be sent into space in 2019.

Tree Diversity Increases Forest Productivity, Mitigate Climate Change: Study[Oct 18, 2018]

Researchers from China, Switzerland and Germany have conducted a large-scale forest biodiversity experiment, showing that a forest with rich species has higher productivity and more carbon accumulation than that with a single plant species. The findings were published online on Oct. 7 in Journal Science.
