Lunar Sample-Return Mission Accomplished

China’s first lunar mission to collect samples from the moon has returned to Earth. The sampling process was generally smooth, except the surface sampling and packing system had once dug too deep and collected more samples than expected, but the research team at PolyU had prepared for such situations and successfully removed the excess soil to complete the task.

Users Wanted to Test App for Tracking Covid-19

A group of researchers from the Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics (LSGI) has developed a mobile application known as “Safety Guarder” for app users to learn if they have visited a venue where a COVID-19 confirmed case was discovered in the past 14 days.
