China is no stranger to enormous construction projects, with their dams and cities being some of the most impressive on earth. Not content to stick with these colossal building projects, China has recently entered a new age where their focus is a level of scientific discovery and dedication so far unknown in mainstream Chinese culture.

One such project is the currently under construction biggest radio telescope in the world, with a diameter of a massive 500 meters. This diameter is nearly 200 meters larger than the previous record holder, the 305-meter-wide Arecebo Observatory in Puerto Rico. The size and complexity of this installation means greater power of detecting long range signals from space, in a way that allows for a far clearer understanding of distant objects than was previously possible.

Not content to merely rest on the laurels of one such achievement, other such groundbreaking developments in Chinese scientific progress include the adaptation of pig corneas as transplants for human patients, which has the potential of restoring sight to many thousands of people globally.

Further contributions include an amazingly advanced new scientific research ship, designed as a launchpad for some of the world’s deepest diving submarines, and an increase in funding for the Chinese space program, an area where the rest of the world has slowly begun to stagnate.

China has been an economic superpower for a long time, and now it looks as if they aren’t content with that major accomplishment, so look forward to a number of important scientific discoveries in the next few years, led by one of the most industrious and dedicated nations in the world.
