Song Xiaoming, a member of the 14th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and the head of the Second Academy of CASIC, told the Global Times that the Weihai-1 laser-based communication payload has successfully undergone the satellite-ground communication technology verification, laying ground for new experiment works. [...] Rong, who is a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top political advisory body, made the remarks on the sidelines of the ongoing two sessions. [...] The BeiDou Navigation Satellite System, the country’s by-far largest space-borne infrastructure also known as the BDS, has also officially joined the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization of the UN in the year. [...] This bill goes against the provisions of international law, including the UN Charter and the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and against the spirit of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea, they pointed out. [...] Zhou Jianping, chief designer of the China Manned Space Program, said the CSS, which consists of five parts: the Tianhe core module, the Wentian lab module, the Mengtian lab module, the Shenzhou manned spacecraft and the Tianzhou cargo spacecraft, is expected to surpass the International Space Station in terms of information, energy, power technology and operating cost-effectiveness.
