Nu mai este nici un secret faptul că China incepe sa depaseasca America şi Occidentul , în numeroase domenii dar  ştiril e exacte despre  ce se intampla acolo sunt  adesea limitate. Săptămâna trecută in telegramele secrete  provenite de la  ambasada americana din Beijing  Wikileaks, a aruncat o  lumină privind  paşii pe oamenii de stiinta chinezi i-au facut în domenii cum ar fi fisiunea nucleară, datele biometrice, şi chiar in teleportare.

Telegrame confidenţiale diplomatice trimise de Ambasada americana din  Beijing la Washington în luna februarie sugerează ca China estein plin progres stiintific si isi  extinde agresiv resursele  în domeniul energiei nucleare, avand planuri de a deschide cel puţin 70 de centrale nucleare în următorii zece ani. Mai interesant, Academia Chineza de Stiinte (CAS) are o  finanţare a cercetării în Institutul de Fizica plasmei (IPP) pentru a desfăşura activităţi de cercetare de varf în fuziunea nucleară.

China a luat, deja, un avans important in fata statelor occidentale si a SUA, in ceea ce priveste investitiile in infrastructura si tehnologii futuriste.

Pana in prezent, nu se stia, cu exactitate, nivelul la care au ajuns chinezii in aceste domenii de maxima importanta. Astazi, dupa publicarea pe Wikileaks a documentelor care privesc China, o intreaga lume afla cu stupoare ca ea  a facut pasi importanti  in domenii precum fisiunea nucleara, biometrie si chiar teleportarea fizica!

Conform unei telegrame secrete, Academia Chineza de Stiinte dispune de fonduri nelimitate pentru sustinerea cercetarilor de la Institutul de Fizica al Plasmei,care este angajat in cercetari fara precedent in privinta fuziunii nucleare. 

Se pare ca, China lucreaza la un nou reactor, intitulat Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak. In acest reactor, savantii chinezi spera sa obtina o fuziune nucleara controlata care sa mentina nedefinit o temperatura extrema.

In anul 2009, cercetatorii chinezi au reusit sa mentina o reactie nucleara care atinsese temperatura de 18 milioane grade Celsius, pana la 400 de secunde, dupa ce anterior mentinusera, timp de 60 de seunde, o reactie nucleara de 180 milioane grade Celsius.

Pe parcursul acestui an, chinezii si-au propus sa obtina temperatura de 180 milioane grade Celsius, mentinuta timp de 400 secunde; spre disperarea lor, serviciile secrete americane nu au reusit sa afle daca asiaticii au reusit acesta performanta, conform documentelor publicate de Wikileaks.

China face pasi uriasi si spre celebrele operatiuni de teleportare: conform unui oficial al Universitatii de Stiinte si Tehnologii din orasul Hefei, savantii chinezi ar fi reusit teleportarea cu succes a unei singure particule quantum, iar in prezent lucreaza la teleportarea a doua particule.

Institutul de Tehnologii Inteligente din China nu se lasa mai prejos, reusind crearea unui sistem biometric care identifica persoanele in functie de trasaturi faciale, greutate si proportii corporale. Device-ul futurist iti citeste toate datele antropometrice intr-o fractiune de secunda

Wikileaked Cables from Beijing Reveal China’s Pursuit of Fusion Power, Teleportation

It’s no secret that China is beating up on America and the West in everything from infrastructure to technology investment, but news of exactly what the People’s Republic is up to is often scarce.

So while the diplomatic establishment continues to reel from the stink of its own dirty laundry in last week’s Wikileaks document dump, cables coming from the American Embassy in Beijing are also shedding light on the strides Chinese scientists are making in far-out fields like nuclear fission, biometrics, and even quantum teleportation.

One confidential diplomatic cable sent from the Beijing Embassy to Washington in February suggests China is doing big things at the small scale.

For one, China is aggressively expanding its nuclear energy resources, with plans to open at least 70 nuclear plants in the next decade. More interestingly, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is pouring research funding into its Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP) to conduct ongoing research into nuclear fusion.

Apparently China has been hard at work on its Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) reactor, which is designed to sustain a controlled fusion reaction that can go on indefinitely at high temperatures. In 2009, researchers apparently sustained a 18-million-degree reaction for 400 seconds, and a 180-million-degree reaction for 60 seconds.

Their goal for 2010 was to sustain a 180-million-degree reaction for more than 400 seconds, though it’s unclear if they achieved that. Moreover, IPP is apparently conducting research on hybrid fission-fusion reactors, though details are slim.

Perhaps most interesting: China doubled the IPP budget in 2009 over 2008, and the diplomatic chatter suggests 2010’s budget saw a significant boost as well. Amid choppy economic waters, such funding bumps indicate a real commitment on China’s part to figure out the fusion energy puzzle.

China’s sci-tech ambitions don’t stop there. While the evidence is anecdotal, the embassy seems to think the Chinese are pulling ahead in fields like quantum communications and even teleportation.

To quote one diplomat’s description of a trip to the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Hefei: “A cursory walk through their labs seemed to indicate they had already succeeded in single-particle quantum teleportation and are now trying to conduct dual-particle quantum teleportation.”

Then there’s the Big Brother tech that we’ve come to expect from China. The same cable says the CAS’s Institute of Intelligent Machines (IIM) in Hefei has created a biometric system that identifies individuals through their pace and gait.

“The device measure weight and two-dimensional sheer forces applied by a person’s foot during walking to create a uniquely identifiable biometrics profile,” the cable says, and can be installed covertly in a floor to surreptitiously collect biometric data.
