No space for “trial and error” in exploration of the universe, says Professor Yung Kai-leung
PolyU’s Professor Yung Kai-leung, Sir Sze-yuen Chung Professor in Precision Engineering, Chair Professor of Precision Engineering, Director of the Research Centre for Deep Space Explorations, and Associate Head of Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, has been closely working with the China Academy of Space Technology for a decade. He and his research team have developed numerous state-of-the-art space devices that have played critical roles in many of China’s Moon and Mars missions in recent years.
But behind the scenes of these successful space feats, Professor Yung said that at the end of the day, it is his persistence in upholding some simple but critical virtues that have made his space dreams come true.
Above all, Professor Yung says in this video that there is no space for trial and error when it comes to rockets and other astronautical endeavours.
