Chinese Scientists Find New Trove of Marine Fossils 500 mln Years Ago[Mar 22, 2019]

Chinese paleontologists have discovered a trove of well-preserved fossils in China 518 million years ago, representing more than 50 previously undescribed animal species, including jellyfish, arthropods and algae. This new fossil assemblage with a high abundance and diversity of species might rival previously described Cambrian sites like the Burgess Shale in Canada and Chengjiang localities in southwest China.

New Rocket Engines in Making for Moon, Mars[Mar 20, 2019]

Chinese engineers are pushing forward with the research and development of engines to be used on the country's next lunar probe and its first Mars probe. There will be more than 70 engines categorized within six series on the Chang'e 5. Work on the liquid-propellant engines has been proceeding well, though some of the engines are new to Chinese engineers.

Hong Kong Researchers Find Shortcut to Predict Brain Diseases' Drug Effectiveness[Mar 19, 2019]

A research team led by the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a new platform to enhance the prediction of effectiveness of medicines treating brain diseases. The result came after five years of collaboration between CityU's Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) and Department of Biomedical Sciences (BMS), and Harvard Medical School, the United States, aiming to provide a platform to predict compounds that have the potential to be developed into new drugs to treat brain diseases.
