尽管VC的体量不到中国GDP的1%,尽管“全民PE”过后路人皆言VC/PE已死,但你不能否认的是,那些优秀的VC们依然是我们这个时代最会赚钱的一群家伙。 或许连买菜大妈都知道王亚伟但不知道沈南鹏是谁,或许二级市场的股评家们一个个都被奉若神明地称之为“投资达人”,但在真正高大上的VC面前,那些回报率简直不值一提。

European Space Agency and Chinese Academy of Sciences to Study Effects of Solar Wind as Joint Mission | This is the first time that Europe and China jointly select, design, implement, launch and operate a space mission! | June 4, 2015: European and Chinese scientists have recommended the Solar wind Magnetosphere Ionosphere Link Explorer (SMILE) as their candidate for a collaborative science mission for launch in 2021.

‘Smile’ will investigate the interaction between Earth’s protective shield—the magnetosphere—and the supersonic solar wind. The mission is expected to make an important contribution to our understanding of space weather and, in particular, the physical processes taking place during the continuous interaction between the solar wind and the magnetosphere.

Smile would be launched into a highly inclined, elliptical orbit that would take it almost a third of the way to the Moon. From this orbit it would be able to make continual observations of key regions in near-Earth space.

These would include simultaneous images and movies of the magnetopause (the boundary between Earth’s magnetosphere and the solar wind), the polar cusps (two regions, one in each hemisphere, where solar wind particles have a direct access to Earth’s ionosphere), and the auroral oval (the region around each geomagnetic pole where auroras most often occur).

X-ray and ultraviolet imagers are proposed to study global distributions of auroras, along with instruments to measure the energetic particles in the solar wind, and changes in the local magnetic field.

This joint venture between ESA and China follows on from the success of the Double Star/Tan Ce missions that provided multipoint measurements of near-Earth space from 2004 to 2008, working in concert with ESA’s Cluster satellites.

However, it will be the first time that ESA and China jointly select, design, implement, launch and operate a space mission.

The latest initiative began with two workshops in China and Europe. ESA’s Directorate of Science and Robotic Exploration and the National Space Science Center (NSSC) under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) then issued a joint call for proposals in January this year.

A total of 13 proposals, covering a range of topics in astrophysics, heliophysics and fundamental physics, were received. Following a joint peer review process carried out by the scientific communities of Europe and China, with the support of ESA and CAS, Smile was identified as the top candidate.

The Principal Investigators are Graziella Branduardi-Raymont from Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London, UK, and Chi Wang from the State Key Laboratory of Space Weather, NSSC, CAS.

A preliminary study will now assess the proposal, prior to beginning the formal selection process in autumn.

After the official go-ahead has been given to Smile, it will enter a two-year study phase, followed by a four-year implementation phase, aiming for launch in 2021.

The payload and satellite will be provided by scientists and industry from both Europe and China. The mission will be implemented by ESA’s Science Program and NSSC, CAS.
