Members of China’s 34th Antarctic expedition pose for group photos on the deck of China’s research icebreaker Xuelong on Jan 15, 2018. Large engineering equipments on Jan 16 were transferred from Xuelong to the Inexpressible Island, where China’s 5th research station will begin construction near the Ross Sea in the Antarctic. The new base is expected to set up within five years, and will provide year-round support for researchers conducting tasks such as observations of land, ocean, atmosphere, ice shelf and biology, establishment of an observation and monitoring network in the Antarctic, and survey of marine environmental protection.[Photo/Xinhua]
