One of China's national rights of way was the development of the cosmos. Moreover resources in this country are enough for what would make the development of its space program to other countries extraordinary pace. In particular, at the recent Assembly in Beijing, Professor Sun Kwok, who has served as dean of the University of Hong Kong, said that many of the people currently living can catch the first contact with an alien race of mankind.
Such unexpected optimism Chinese Professor came as a surprise to many of those present at the Assembly. However, despite this, this view of Chinese professors still shared by many, while recognizing that in the near future, China may indeed be the best place in the exploration of outer space, as well as planets.
At the moment, China does not have any technologies that could enable the country to create some complex scientific instruments, for example, such as the rover Curiosity or Webb telescope. However, China is quite able to conduct large-scale studies, including search of habitable planets using sensitive ground-based telescopes of great resolution. Kermode, the same can be engaged in a simple Chinese observatories combined into one large network. In addition, one of the most advanced observatories on the surface of the earth, at the moment it is China that is building, and placed, it will be in Antarctica.
As stated in the Assembly, Sun Kwok, in the next 20-30 years, Chinese astronomers hope to obtain clear evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial life. However, the professor warned against expectations that humanity will burn immediately get in touch with high-tech alien race that can build huge city and travel from one end of the galaxy to the other. Most likely, the first signs of the existence of the discovered life beyond Earth would any microorganisms.
Scientists have been able to find on earth microbes capable of surviving under conditions of extreme-low temperatures. On this basis it was concluded that the universe may well be other microorganisms, which, like the earth, can exist in extremely unfavorable conditions for life.
