Luckily, she got the answers to her concerns in a lecture given by Shen Liping, former deputy chief engineer of China’s manned space program this week. In his speech to the Jiao Cheng No.1 Middle School in Jiaocheng County, north China’s Shanxi Province, Shen shed an insight into the past of China’s space program, including its future plans and addressed questions from students. “I was awed by the enthusiasm of astronauts and scientists after I learned about the science of aerospace in the lecture. Space exploration is my dream, this is an opportunity to be beneficial to me throughout my lifetime,” Sun said. The lecture was part of the programs of the Chinese Society of Space Research to encourage sciences within Shanxi Province. Experts and top scientists from the space sciences will be giving a series lectures to students at eight schools during the month of April. This year marks thirty years since China’s space-manned program. Chinese aerospace companies have made significant advances in spacecraft launches as well as astronaut spacewalks and is also working on large-scale space-related experiments. The accomplishments have brought excitement in Chinese young people, encouraging them to follow their space-related dreams.
After graduating at the age of 26, she was 26 years old. Shi Yurong joined the National Space Science Center, Chinese Academy of Sciences for work on space environmental forecasting. Alongside conducting research in the field of space environment monitoring and forecasting her team also is responsible for monitoring the space environment for a variety of mission spacecrafts within China. “As an infant I was excited to see rocket launches on TV and now I am able to contribute to the field of space science. I am grateful and humbled,” said Shi, noting that the advancement and popularity of space science inspired her to pursue a career in the area. “I believe that the growth of technology and science in a nation is dependent on the generation of children learning about science, becoming enthralled with it and dedicating their lives to this field,” Shi added. Space science is becoming easier to access for Chinese teens. Yang Liwei, space exploration dreamer, China’s first space explorer, taught an aerospace-themed science course for teens on the China Science and Technology Museum on National Science Popularization Day this month. More than 280,000 teens attended the class via live streams. Zhihu is a similar to Quora’s knowledge-sharing platform in China has recently announced an initiative focusing on space science. Numerous experts in aerospace have shared their knowledge about space and China’s achievements in aerospace with users. China will continue to push for the popularization of science. In 2035, the percentage of people who are educated in science will rise to 25 percent and the development of high-quality popular science-related services will be greatly improved as per a set of guidelines to increase the popularization of technology and science in the current age, which was released by the central authorities. China’s accomplishments in the field of science and technology will help to increase the popularity of science and encourage creative thinking and scientific spirit within the population, said Yu Dengyun, deputy chief creator in China’s lunar exploration project.
