Thirty-seven program partners, including universities, research and development centers, government departments, and organizations, will showcase their research achievements at the Science Park. Established in 2002, the Shaw Prize recognizes currently active scientists with recent significant breakthroughs in scientific research. Three prizes are awarded annually in Mathematical Sciences, Life Science and Medicine, and Astronomy. In the exhibition, you can learn more about this year’s Shaw Laureates and their scientific achievements. This sci-fi movie depicts the journey of astronauts from different countries as they embark on the first manned mission to Mars. It highlights the challenges involved in the 1001-day mission to uncover the mysteries of the Red Planet. While it has been over half a century since the first astronaut Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon, landing on Mars is a much more complex goal that requires advanced technology and poses greater risks. This movie portrays the exhilaration of finally achieving this long-held dream of visiting other planets in person, and the international cooperation that would be required to turn fiction into reality.
