The spirit of the national defense scientists December 2, 2020

The spirit of the national defense scientists

In a dozen years from the late 1950s to the early 1970s, Chinese scientists worked independently toward the successful detonation of China's first A-bomb, and the successful launches of its first missile and its first man-made satellite. These cutting-edge technologies brought with them a spirit based on the selfless dedication of the scientists, their deep love of the country, and their self-reliance, strong resilience, and close teamwork.
