Humans are made to disrupt the vast knowledge of universe. Innovations holds the key to the future of our next generation. In future the Nanotechnology cure any disease (cold or the cancer) within a day, and we may can able to build bridge from earth to mars. It’s obvious that people will be much intelligent than their past generation. The world with the uncertainty we need to be prepared for the both good or the worst, so the future generations will be in their right path.

The total cost of this mission around 124 billion rupees ($2.67 billion USD).

World’s Largest Single-Aperture Telescope
China had their technological advancement in the manufacturing industry than any other country in the world, now they’re ready to break into the space industry by building world’s largest single-aperture telescope in Guizhou province. They started to build this telescope on 2011 and planned to complete by 2016. Only big problem is that, it occupies 2.1 million sq ft (196,000 sq m) of the area.
