Third Chinese research station in Antarctica - Kunlun station

Today we went to a seminar at the Science Museum on the topic of the third Chinese research station in Antarctica - Kunlun. The talk was organized by Dr. Rebecca Lee, and the guest speak was Dr. Yuansheng Li, the leader who led the team to build the station.

China has already built two research stations in Antarctica. The Changcheng (Great-Wall) Station, founded in February 1985, is located south of King George Island. The Zhongshan Station, built in February 1989, is located south of Prydz Bay on the Mirror Peninsula, eastern of Larsemann Hills.

Six countries, including the United States, Russia, Japan, France, Italy and Germany, have already built inland research stations in the Antarctica.
