According to Digital Paper, China will build the country's first permanent airport in Antarctica, which will facilitate the nation's research and expeditions on the frozen continent. The selected site is an ice cap 28 km away from Zhongshan Antarctic Station, which was surveyed by China’s 33rd Antarctic expedition in 2017. The construction of the planned airport will be carried out by China’s 35th Antarctic expedition, which is set to leave on November 2. (Courtesy: Yangshixinwen+, NBD)
