Chinese Scientists Create Gas Detector As Sensitive As Dog's Sniffer[Mar 08, 2018]

A team of Chinese scientists has used graphene to create an artificial gas detector that is as good as a dog's nose. The study, reported Wednesday in ACS Nano, a monthly scientific journal of the American Chemical Society, showed that the graphene-based nanoscrolls can mimic a dog's sensitive sniffer, which is lined with millions of tiny capillaries.


Research Starts on Advanced Icebreaker[Mar 08, 2018]

Chinese scientists have begun preliminary research on a next-generation icebreaker capable of lengthy research missions in the Arctic and Antarctica. The new type of research icebreaker will be assigned long-term scientific expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctica, helping other ships enter polar regions and responding to emergencies in ice-covered areas.

Unmanned Polar Station 'Successful'[Mar 07, 2018]

The first Chinese unmanned weather station deployed at Dome Argus, the highest point on the Antarctic Plateau, has been hailed a success after completing a full year of testing. The automatic and unmanned weather station is necessary because it is difficult for people to stay for extended periods in the extreme Antarctic conditions.
