“It is expected that with this gene Bank will create a new human civilization”, – stated in the message.
In the near future Shainghai ManWei Technology is going to create space in the gene Bank that will store millions of samples. According to the plan of the company, this genetic material then have to transport to Mars and “planet similar to Earth.”
The wound in September, China made a successful launch of the carrier rocket Changzheng-3B with two navigation satellites Beidou-3, which became the 37th and 38th satellites of the global navigation system Beidou.
