Significant scientific breakthroughs and discoveries
China, a relative late-comer in modern science, has in recent made several significant scientific breakthroughs and discoveries.
From putting into use the world's largest radio telescope, successfully collecting samples of combustible ice in the SouthChinaSea to the most recent reporting of a successful transmission of "entangled" photon pairs from space to ground stations separated by 1,200 km, achievements made by Chinese scientists have been drawing worldwide attention.
Scientific analysts said the Chinese government's heavy investment in research and scientific development, and the return flows of overseas Chinese talents are the main reasons behind these scientific achievements of China.
