10. China makes major sci-tech progress across the board

China marked the conclusion of its three-step lunar exploration program on Dec. 17 as the returner of Chang'e-5 brought back lunar samples.

It was part of a series of major scientific and technological achievements China has made over the past year, which also include the launch of Mars probe Tianwen-1, the completion of the 10,000 meter sea trials for the manned submersible Fendouzhe and its return to port, and the development of quantum computer prototype "Jiuzhang."

Image released by the China National Space Administration (CNSA) on Dec. 4, 2020 shows China's national flag unfurled from the Chang'e-5 probe on the moon. The image was taken by a panoramic camera installed on the lander-ascender combination of the probe, before the ascender blasted off from the moon with lunar samples.

A research team including Chinese quantum physicist Pan Jianwei established a quantum computer prototype, named "Jiuzhang," via which up to 76 photons were detected, the team announced Dec. 4, 2020. This achievement marks that China has reached the first milestone on the path to full-scale quantum computing -- a quantum computational advantage, also known as "quantum supremacy," which indicates an overwhelming quantum computational speedup.
