BEIJING, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- The following is a summary of published science and technology news of China.


The southern Chinese city of Guangzhou has adopted facial recognition technology since Monday in two of its subway stations, allowing for fast and easy entrance.

Instead of using tickets or their smartphones, passengers can smile at a screen to unlock the electric gates.


A satellite terminal, believed to be world's largest of its kind, will be put into operation at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport, as its third-phase expansion project will start operation on Sept. 16.

The satellite terminal has 90 boarding bridges, reducing the use of ferry buses and greatly improving the travel experience of passengers. It is expected that fuel consumption of support vehicles at the airport will be reduced by 1,623 tonnes a year after the operation of the satellite terminal.


The Greg Mortimer, China's first self-made cruise ship for polar expeditions, set sail for the southern Argentine city of Ushuaia Monday before launching its South Pole voyage.

It is expected to arrive in the Antarctic region by the end of October for a two-week exploration tour. Enditem
