It makes our technology the same as technologies of the highest level in the world. The research achievements will provide theoretical and supporting technologies to life support of our future deep space exploration.


4. Internet Technology

On September 14, 1987, experts from China and Germany eliminated the blockade on new techniques after four years of endeavors and sent the first e-mail with its indigenously established e-mail system, making the country officially connected to and registered in the international computer networks. Werner Zorn, a German expert who had won the Friendship Award, made great contributions to this achievement. Thanks to joints efforts of Chinese and American experts, a 64K dedicated circuit to the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) was opened officially. Built by the Institute of High-Energy Physics under CAS, the dedicated circuit was linked to the United States through an international satellite communication channel rented from AT&T. It is the first dedicated circuit of China to be partly linked to Internet, which opened the door to the Internet era in China.


5. “CR-01” Underwater Robot Capable of Diving as Deep as 6,000 Meters

Since 1992, Jiang Xinsong, pioneer of the robot career of China, led his team for cooperation with Russia that was dominated by China to develop wireless and autonomous underwater robot that is capable of diving as deep as 6,000 meters. In August 1995, “CR-01” underwater robot capable of diving 6,000 meters was successfully developed, making China one of the first class countries in terms of technologies of robot. The robot was elected one of the top ten progresses in science and technology of 1997 and won the first prize of award for progresses in scientific and technological of 1998. From March 1999, China continued its cooperation with Russia to jointly develop the manned submersible capable of diving 7,000 meters and mastered key technologies of deep-sea exploration.


6. Technology of Water-Saving Irrigation

Technologies of trickle irrigation and sprinkling irrigation that are introduced from Israel and America have been widely applied in arid regions of China, and American technology of infiltrating irrigation has been spread in northern parts of China including Hebei, Shandong, Henan and Shaanxi, and improves the water-saving efficiency by 50% and increases the production by 30% to 50%.


7. Construction of Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant

It is the first nuclear power plant of the mainland to use foreign technologies and capital. Launched in 1982 and completed in 1994, the plant started its commercial operation in 1994, and becomes one of the five winners of the “1994 International Nuclear Power Station Prize” elected by POWER-GEN International and the only nuclear power station of China to win the honor. Technologies and equipment are all imported from abroad, and in the initial stage, foreign experts held the post of major positions from director to section chief, and most of positions of engineering and technologies. At that time, there were engineering technicians from 26 countries on the construction site of Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant and more than 2000 foreign experts at most. To master international advanced technologies, the Chinese side has sent over 100 technicians to go abroad for training.


8. Beijing Electron Positron Collider

In 1988, Beijing Electron Positron Collider (BEPC) succeeded in its first electron-positron collision, known as another major breakthrough in the high-tech field after the atomic bomb and hydrogen bomb exploded and man-made satellite was sent into space. In 1984, China and America jointly launched the project of BEPC, and began the modification works of electron positron collider and its spectrometer in 2004, and finally met the comprehensive goals in 2009. In March 2013, a team of international cooperation constituted by more than 300 scientists from 11 countries announced that BEPC found a new resonant structure, which is likely to open a door to discover and research new hadronstate. Foreign experts such as Tsung-Dao Lee and Samuel Chao Chung Ting played an important role in the process.


9. Rice Dry-Raising and Thin Planting

It is a rice cultivation technique that saves seeds, fertilizers, water and energy and increases production, which boosts the production of each mu (about 0.0667 hectare) by an average of over 10%. And technique was introduced from Japan in the 1980s, and was applied to more than 200 million mu in 1998. Japanese expert Hara Shoichi was invited to pass on the knowledge of rice dry-raising and thin planting for 63 times from 1982 to 2002.


10. Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge
