University of Macau launched spatial analysis laboratories

The experimental platforms opened yesterday at the University of Science and Technology of Macau (MUST) are unique across China and give Macau arguments to receive and analyze space samples.

For André Antunes, a Portuguese researcher who leads the MUST astrobiology team, this could be the first step towards making Macau a global reference.

It may have been a small step for Macau, but it is certainly a big step for space research across China, and beyond, said André Antunes.

According to the researcher, the experimental platforms for Astrobiology and Cosmochemistry that opened yesterday at MUST through the State Reference Laboratory of Lunar and Planetary Sciences (State Key Lab) is unique in all of China and, therefore, has the ability to make Macau “a global reference” and “the focal point for this type of activities for the whole of China”.
