British media: China is no longer " research new star " high quality research into the norm

According to Hong Kong's South China Morning Post "website reported on August 1. Recently, in Sichuan at the elevation of 4410 meters peak, Chinese scientists began construction of" high altitude cosmic ray observation station (lhaaso), which is the world altitude is highest, the scale is biggest, the sensitivity of the strongest of the cosmic ray detection device.

It is reported that the scientists plan to build a volume more than twice the Beijing "Water Cube" pool, hope captured from distant deep space of the mysterious particles, like to take this opportunity to make a series of research results, such as proof of Einstein's theory of the universe is wrong.

Reported that the famous British scientific publications, "natural" every four years, the selection of a global research "Star", the rapid rise of the country in the field of scientific research. India, Poland and Saudi Arabia, the latest on the list for the first time, but Chinese "lost".

"China's outstanding growth in high quality research has become the norm, so we don't see China as a new star," said the journal Nature ".

China has a new scientific research facilities and the world's largest scientific research team, is the scientific field to open up their own world. Some fields of Chinese scientists have gone beyond the overseas counterparts, but also some scientists believe that China is still a lack of innovative ideas, has not yet become a research powerhouse.

Reported that the high altitude cosmic ray observatory sits on 12 billion yuan budget and construction period will span five years time, and this is only the Chinese mainland to carry out a number of large-scale hardware project of a. The world's largest radio telescope has been completed in Guizhou, world's first single quantum satellite is about to launch, and the government is still consider more ambitious projects, such as the world's largest particle collider and manned Mars exploration project.

China's total investment in R & D expenditures last year is equivalent to more than 2% of the gross domestic product, the scale of R & D investment in the world after the United states.

East China Normal University is located in Shanghai, a teacher for the purpose of the University, but the school's scientific research personnel are still writing a large number of "world class" papers, published in 2012 reached more than two times in 2015. East China Normal University, York University, Texas State University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the world's leading research institutes and scholars have come to participate in cooperative research.

There are so many research institutes in the mainland of China, "nature" magazine on its official website says, "we can do a whole magazine for them."".

But the Shanghai academic journal Cell Research editor Wang Chieh (sound) believes that the scale of funds, hardware and scientific research team is not enough to turn China into a real scientific research. In her subject, Chinese scientists have been leading the field of stem cell and structural biology, but in many other areas, they are still catching up with Western scientists.
