GIOVEDÌSCIENZA ON MONDAYIn recent years China has displayed an increasing interest for basic or fundamental research which it has also heavily invested in. Astronomy bears witness of their new approach as they build the largest radio-telescope in the world (500 metres in diameter) and develop elementary particle physics , experiments with accelerators and detectors on board space missions. Italy - and specifically the INFN - has always been a point of reference for international cooperation in China, with projects that involve some of the main world physics labs. Science is global, but physics is even more so especially given the resources invested, and the fall out on future technology, economics and society.
