Unfinished Chinese landscape painting completed by AI auctioned for 1.1 million CN¥ (150,000 €) The female painter LU Xiaoman who passed away in 1965 had left an unfinished classic landscape painting “Summer mountain dwelling”. The descendants of LU Xiaoman had asked a famous contemporary landscape painter, LE Zhenwen, from the same school as LU Xiaoman, to finish the painting. While Le Zhenwen was still studying the brushwork […]

Camel thorns help in desert greening Camel thorn is a deep-rooted desert plant that grows in arid and semi-arid areas, and is highly effective in preventing wind and fixing sand. In order to master its adaptability to survive in harsh environments and expand artificial cultivation, researchers at Cele station cultivated it in giant “pots” of nearly 2 meters high through […]

China’s Gansu province powers water conservancy with digital twin technology The digital twin system of the Shule River is a national pilot project launched by China’s Ministry of Water Resources in February this year. The project has created a virtual version of the Shule River in the digital world, which simulates all factors of the physical river and the whole process of water management […]

Thermal desorption optimization for the remediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils Heat treatment is one of the effective ways to remediate organic contaminated soil. The CAS Marine and Environmental Geotechnical Engineering Research Center of Wuhan Institute of Rock and Soil Mechanics, has combining structural, morphology and chemical characterization to optimise thermo-oxidative remediation. The research results provide optimization for the remediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils by a self-built […]

China opens first fossil-energy independent telecommunication base China’s first telecommunications base station to use “solar power, hydrogen energy, and energy storage” as an integrated zero-emission, non-polluting power source was opened to traffic on Hudiechang Island in the port city of Fengcheng. The base station is the first in China to adopt the threefold guarantee of integrating solar power, hydrogen energy, and […]

Nitrogen fixation occurred first in eubacteria, not arches Dr. Wen-Hsiung Li and colleagues at the Biodiversity Research Center, Academia Sinica, Taiwan, have published a study that overturns the conventional hypothesis on the origin and evolution of nitrogen fixation in organisms. Previous studies had postulated that nitrogen fixation first evolved in archaea and then transferred to eubacteria. However, nitrogen-fixing eubacteria are much more […]

China builds up fleets of hydrogen fuel cell cars Both Beijing and Shanghai announced plans to have each over 10,000 hydrogen-driven FCVs in their urban fleets by 2025. Tianjin, Guangdong and Hebei are expected to follow quickly. Beijing plans for 37 hydrogen gas stations by 2023 and 74 by 2025. For an initial phase, grey or blue hydrogen will be provided, to be […]

China installs stationary monitoring stations on the seafloor China has newly installed a stationary system that operate fully automatically on the seafloor, monitoring its own condition and performing smart management. Scientific researchers can also remotely control the station. The newly installed station is equipped with a MWh lithium battery energy system, which represents a new breakthrough in energy density. The energy system is […]

Contactless electrocardiogram monitoring with millimeter wave radar Researchers at the University of Science and Technology of China recently have realized real-time non-contact human ECG monitoring using millimeter-wave radar. They took advantage of the fact that the electrical and mechanical activities of the heart are the same source of cardiac activity but have different characteristics, and used millimeter wave radar to measure […]
