    China does on drive to attract their future students into STEM fields. An example - "Lunar soil sent to HK for exhibit, boosts patriotic sentiment".

    http://en.people.cn/n3/2021/0622/c90000-9863526.html

    Events explaining China's aerospace development, including an exhibition of lunar soil brought back by the Chang'e-5 lunar probe from its epic trip last December, are expected to be put on show in Hong Kong this week. The event will boost locals' patriotic sentiment and spur Hong Kong researchers to become involved in the country's scientific advance, local university professors told the Global Times on Monday.

    Samples of the lunar soil that were retrieved from China's first extraterrestrial sample-collecting mission were due to arrive in Hong Kong on Monday, local media hk01.com reported, and they will be put on display at an exhibition center from June 27 until July. A smaller version of the Chang'e-5 lunar probe prototype will also be shown to the public.

    Now they are ready to be harvested.

    https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202107/1228365.shtml

    China's first batch of rice seeds that traveled 23 days in space on the Chang'e-5 lunar probe in November 2020 have begun yielding grain, which experts said will enrich China's grain varieties and safeguard the country's food security, and also lay grounds for future manned deep-space explorations to the moon, Mars and other celestial bodies.

    After over four months of growth, the dropping ears of the 2,000 "space rice plants" at the space breeding research center of the South China Agricultural University in South China's Guangdong Province promise a fruitful harvest, as researchers bagged the seeds that are each 1 centimeter long into three large parcels, China Media Group reported on Sunday.

    "China's CO2 satellite yields country's first global carbon flux dataset"

    https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202108/1231634.shtml

    Chinese scientists are contributing their wisdom to global and national efforts to slow down climate change, as they have recently compiled China's first global carbon flux dataset based on high-quality data collected by the country's first carbon dioxide (CO2) monitoring satellite, the Global Times learned from the project leader on Monday.

    The breakthrough means that China has become the third country with the ability to quantitatively monitor the global carbon budget from space. The satellite, commonly known as TanSat, has proven it can perform the task as brilliantly as those from Japan and the US, Yang Dongxu, a fellow researcher with the Institute of Atmospheric Physics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and also the chief scientist of the project, told the Global Times on Monday.

    "Space tech assists Chinese farmers to fish fortune in ponds"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/202...1310139638.htm

    A sea of white lotus, grown from space-bred seeds, is blooming under early autumn sunshine in fields of Guangchang County, east China's Jiangxi Province, promising a bumper harvest for local farmers.

    Guangchang has sent lotus seeds to the space for six times and developed a series of space lotus strains.

    "Space breeding has become one of the methods of agricultural breeding that combines techniques of aerospace, biology and agriculture," said Yang Liangbo, head of the white lotus research institute in Guangchang. "Seeds can be nurtured into new strains after they go through genetic mutations in space."

    He said the space-bred lotus strains are welcomed by growers as they have higher yield, better quality and longer flowering season, compared with traditional varieties.

    Guangchang has developed 110,000 mu (7,333 hectares) of space-bred lotus ponds, yielding 9,000 tonnes of lotus seeds a year.

    "China develops prototype Mars helicopter. Here's our exclusive interview with its developers"

    https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202109/1233466.shtml

    The newly developed and recently unveiled prototype miniature helicopter drone, a possible means to support China's Mars missions, is designed to become a navigator for the Mars rover. It will greatly boost the latter's ability to explore valuable targets on the surface of the Red Planet, the project leader said on Monday.

    Carrying a small-sized multispectral detection and imaging system, the "Mars surface cruise drone system" is capable of forming image of a large area of within a radius of a few hundred meters in a single flight, which enables the rover to rapidly grasp the surrounding terrain for a safer and faster drive via precision guiding, Bian Chunjiang, a researcher with the National Space Science Center (NSSC) under the Chinese Academy of Science and chief scientist of the project, told the Global Times in an exclusive interview on Monday.

    "Why does China want to build a kilometre-long spacecraft? And is it even possible?"

    https://www.sciencefocus.com/news/wh...even-possible/

    The Chinese space programme has been raising eyebrows again – this time because of its proposal to study how to build a large spacecraft, at least one kilometre in length.

    To put that into perspective, the International Space Station (ISS) is just 109 metres across, yet it cost $150 billion (110 billion) and took thirty missions over the course of a decade to build. China’s proposal is for a spacecraft 10 times the size of the ISS. It may sound crazy but don’t make the mistake of dismissing it just yet.

    “It’s about ambition, long-term thinking and instilling a sense of purpose. Such long-haul thinking does not fit in well with shorter-term western thinking, which might mistakenly dismiss this as propaganda,” says space writer Brian Harvey, author of the book China in Space: The Great Leap Forward.

    "‘Space oil tank truck’ makes debut at Airshow China, provides energy for satellites’ long-term operation"

    https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202109/1235426.shtml

    [QUOTE]A refueling aircraft, known as a space oil tank truck, made its debut at Airshow China 2021 in Zhuhai, South China's Guangdong Province, which kicked off on Tuesday. The aircraft can provide an energy guarantee for the long-term operation of satellites in orbit.

    Satellites have become vital for modern human life. They provide weather forecasts, television broadcasts, mobile communications, global navigation and other services.

    However, it is very expensive to build a geostationary orbit satellite, usually costing billions of yuan. When the fuel runs out, the satellite's life is over. Therefore, fuel replenishment technology can provide an energy guarantee for the long-term operation of satellites in orbit.

    A fuel replenishment aircraft was designed as a result, leading to its debut at this year's Airshow China. [QUOTE]

    "China’s routine space vehicle test ‘a transparent act for peaceful use, not militarization’"

    https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202110/1236647.shtml

    The Chinese Foreign Ministry on Monday said the Financial Times-reported "China's test of new space capability with a hypersonic missile in August" was in fact a routine test of technology for reusing a space vehicle, and Chinese experts said that China has the right to test such technology for peaceful purpose regardless of how the US or the West demonizes it. If the US launches a space arms race, non-Western powers like China and Russia would be forced to turn their advanced capabilities into military use for strategic deterrence and self-defense, experts said.

    Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said at a routine press conference on Monday that such a test is meant to lower the cost of using a space vehicle, and it can provide more low-cost measures for the peaceful use of space.

    "China’s hypersonic vehicle test a ‘significant demonstration’ of space technology"

    https://spacenews.com/chinas-hyperso...ce-technology/

    China’s reported tests of a hypersonic orbital glide vehicle have sparked alarm in the U.S. as it could further fuel an escalating arms race. The Chinese government said this week that these were routine space test missions, not a demonstration of a new military weapon. One way or the other, experts said, these tests show China’s notable advances in reusable space technology.

    To be sure, a space vehicle that orbits the Earth, reenters the atmosphere at hypersonic speed and glides to its intended target area is not new technology, said Robert Bakos, principal and co-owner of Innoveering, a company that specializes in propulsion technology used in hypersonic vehicles.

    “The U.S. had the Space Shuttle and we have the X-37B spaceplane which can be deemed a hypersonic system because when it returns from space, it’s going a very high speeds,” he said.

    What appears to be a new is the Chinese vehicle’s capability to maneuver after reentry in ways that have not been seen before, Bakos said, adding that he has no direct knowledge of what exactly the Chinese tested and his comments are based on what was publicly reported.
