The 10th Public Science Day of CAS opened at RADI on May 17. It was attended by more than 150 participants, including experts and scholars from within and outside CAS, the public, and students from universities and schools.

A public forum entitled SELF (science, education, life and future) was launched at the ceremony to explore new ways of science popularization. Rather than taking the conventional form of knowledge transmission, the event emphasized the philosophy of sharing ideas and enlightening the future, and encouraging the transmission of ideas and spirit, openness and interdisciplinary exchanges.

The speakers of the first session of the forum included CEO of CHEN Yidan, Vice President of Communication University of China HU Zhengrong, founder of ONE-MAN University TONG Zhe, Executive Director of China Internet Network Information Center LI Xiaodong and Chief Engineer of the Computer Network Information Center (CNIC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences YAN Baoping.

As the main venue of the event, RADI gave full play of its permanent exhibition of popular science and special exhibits of the State Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science. To help the visitors have an object understanding of the reception, distribution, processing and application of satellite data, RADI also showed them the operation and management system of its satellite remote sensing center, its real-time broadcast system of satellite data of remote sensing and typical remote sensing images of aerial and space remote sensing.

A major event of science popularization at CAS, the public science day is an important component of the nationwide S&T Week. Under the theme of S&T Innovation Helping Dream Come True, the event involves more than 100 CAS institutions across the country to showcase their S&T achievements.
