Creative background

There are numerous scientific mysteries buried at the north and south poles of the earth with cold climate. Polar scientific research is an important field for human beings to explore the mysteries of nature and promote human development. The Chinese polar scientific expedition started in the early 1980s, and on November 20, 1984, a team was sent to the Antarctic for the first time, starting to build the first scientific research station. The Great Wall Station, Zhongshan Station, Kunlun Station and Mount Taishan Station were established successively, and the Yellow River Station in the Arctic was completed in 2004. In addition, China also has the “Snow Dragon” ice-breaking research vessel and domestic research base, which has laid a good foundation for China to continue to deepen its polar scientific research. So far, China has successfully organized 30 Antarctic scientific expeditions, 6 Arctic scientific expeditions, and 10 annual Yellow River station expeditions. After years of arduous field scientific investigation, a large number of extremely valuable data, materials and samples have been obtained, and many achievements of great scientific value have been obtained, which have made important contributions to human understanding and exploring the mysteries of the polar region. In its extensive participation in international polar affairs and international cooperation in the polar field, China’s status and influence have been continuously improved, and it is moving forward from a great power in polar exploration to a great power in polar exploration.
