"Through devoting great energy to implementing the innovation-driven development strategy, we have seen much accomplished toward making China a country of innovators, with major advances made in science and technology, including the successful launch of Tiangong-2 space laboratory, the commissioning of the deep-sea manned submersible Jiaolong and of the FAST Tianyan, the launch of the dark matter probe satellite Wukong and the quantum science satellite Mozi." The innovations mentioned in the 19th CPC National Congress report attract the whole world again. "We will foster a culture of innovation, and strengthen the creation, protection, and application of intellectual property." Chinese innovations will continue to lead us forward in the "new era".
Space laboratory - Tiangong
Tiangong-2 space laboratory, launched in September 2016, were stacked with patented technologies such as spaceship automatic docking and "space filling", representing a new height of Chinese innovations. Tiangong-2 was listed as one of the 25 best inventions of the year by "Time".
Quantum Science Experiment Satellite - Mozi
Mozi, launched in August 2016, is the first quantum science experiment satellite in the world. A large number of Chinese patents secured China to be the first in performing experiments on quantum encryption communication covering the range of 1000-plus kilometers. The technology was listed to the ten "2016 World Changing Ideas" by Scientific American.
C919 aircraft is the first large civil jet aircraft independently developed by China in accordance with international civil aviation regulations. With over 10,000 patent applications filed in China, C919 performed its maiden voyage on 5 May 2017. C919 as a large airliner symbolizes top-shelf manufacturing of a country, marking China's advancement into mid-high-end manufacturing.
Dark Matter Particle Explorer - Wukong
Chinese Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE), Wukong, is a dark matter particle explorer with widest range of observation and best resolution of energy. Protected by hundreds of Chinese patents, Wukong elevates human exploration of the origin of high energy cosmic rays to a new height.
Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope - Tianyan
Tianyan is the 500-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST) armed with self-reliant IPRs, recognized as the world's largest filled-aperture and most sensitive radio telescope. By reaching a distance of 15.7 billion light years, FAST has discovered a number of pulsars in recent years, contributing significantly to academic advancement.
Manned deep-sea research submersible - Jiaolong
On June 27, 2012, loaded with over 100 Chinese invention patents, Jiaolong manned deep-sea research submersible obsoleted the world record of diving depth by reaching 7,062 meters (23,169 feet) in the Mariana Trench, driving China into the leading pack of deep-water research.
