China Launches Relay Satellite to Explore Moon's Far Side[May 21, 2018]

China plans to launch a relay satellite into space next Monday, May 21, for the Chang'e-4 lunar probe scheduled later this year. The Chang'e-4 lunar probe will undertake the first ever soft landing on the far side of the Moon. However, direct communication with the far side of the Moon is not possible, which is one of the many challenges of the Chang'e-4 lunar probe mission.

China Sets Record for Super-thin Glass[May 21, 2018]

Chinese scientists have developed a super-thin glass just 0.12 millimeters thick, or thinner than two pieces of printer paper. The glass is the world's thinnest glass in mass production by float process. Making it both thin and tough was a challenge. Chinese scientists spent more than 30 years developing the super-thin glass. Their breakthrough prompted the price of super-thin glass to plunge by more than 66 percent on the international market.
