Official announcement of the results of the 2023 Academy of Sciences new election, 45-year-old Yan Ningxin elected as a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, what other information is worth paying attention to?

On November 22, the results of the 2023 selection of academicians were officially announced, with 59 academicians elected to the Chinese Academy of Sciences and 74 academicians elected to the Chinese Academy of Engineering The list of the 2023 selection of academicians has been published

The Great Accomplishments and Burdens of Academic Giants

A few casual remarks.

I saw several familiar names on this list.

By various fortuitous circumstances, I happen to know some of these big shots' students, and our relationship is pretty good.

During the times when I have meals and chat with them, I have heard them talk about their academic prowess countless times. These big shots have solid research skills and are at the top level in their respective fields. Despite their age, they still maintain enthusiasm for research and a keen attention to detail. In short, whenever these matters are mentioned, fellow students' eyes light up and their admiration for the big shots is unending.

However, there is always a “however”.

These big shots often have certain common characteristics. For example, they rarely personally mentor students and have become, in some sense, “honorary advisors”. Students' understanding of them basically comes from the urban legends circulated within the research group, as well as the occasional praise during annual meetings.

Moreover, the path to becoming an academician for these big shots was not always smooth. We now see them sitting on the throne of the domestic scientific research community, but little do we know that they have experienced numerous failures. Each application process requires the collective resources of the entire research group, and even the entire institution. Each time, they have to pull strings and curry favor. Each time, they exhaust themselves and sacrifice their well-being, but each time, they are just running alongside.

However, despite the enormous effort they expend, once they make it onto the list, the rewards are immense. A myriad of resources start pouring in your direction, and just one evaluation from you can change the course of an entire industry. It’s not an exaggeration to say “one person’s success benefits the whole society”.

But some people don’t care.

When I first saw the list, I asked a fellow student, “Your advisor made it, why aren’t you hurrying back to attend the celebration in the university?” They casually replied, “I’m not going. After all, I’m not planning to stay in academia. Groveling and flattery are too tiring.”

The Achievements of LHAASO: High-Energy Physics Research in China

During the selection stage for this year’s academicians, I predicted that Professor Cao Zhen from the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, has the ability to be elected as an academician.

With the upcoming election of academicians, what are your predictions for the second round of results?

Today, the results of the election for academicians were announced, and Professor Cao has indeed made it onto the list, well-deserved!

Professor Cao is the chief scientist of the Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO), a large scientific project built in China. It is located in Daocheng, Sichuan, on the edge of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, at an altitude of over 4,000 meters on Mount Haizi. The pronunciation of LHAASO is similar to the Tibetan word “Laso,” which means “good,” which seems to also foreshadow that LHAASO can produce excellent scientific research results. The main research subject of this project is high-energy cosmic rays, and since its completion and operation, it has indeed produced numerous world-class scientific research achievements. After attending a LHAASO results conference, I once introduced LHAASO and its achievements on Zhihu:

The captured message from the Swan constellation millions of years ago discovered a large number of ultra-high-energy cosmic accelerators and the highest energy photons in the Milky Way galaxy. What is the significance of this discovery?

In the office building of the Institute of High Energy Physics, there is a sand table of LHAASO, where one can get a glimpse of the overall picture of LHAASO.

In a live broadcast event two years ago, I once connected with Professor Cao Zhen and asked him to introduce the construction process of LHAASO. At that time, he recalled many stories about the early construction of LHAASO, such as their horse-riding surveys for site selection on the plateau and so on. Scientists do not always conduct research in ivory towers or lofty buildings. In order to obtain the best scientific research results, scientists often carry out scientific engineering projects in the most arduous and challenging environments. Professor Cao Zhen is one such scientist.

In the “Zhihu Lighthouse Project” program that we produced this year, we also filmed LHAASO and interviewed Professor Cao Zhen. The editing process of this episode is currently in progress, so please look forward to it.

Summary: List of Newly Elected Academicians in 2023

First of all, congratulations on the further expansion of the academicians team in the two academies. The Chinese Academy of Sciences has elected 59 new academicians, and the Chinese Academy of Engineering has elected 74 new academicians.

The academicians of the two academies are outstanding representatives and the highest and lifelong honorary academic title in the fields of science, technology, and engineering in China. The election of academicians is carried out once every two years.

This year, it is worth noting that Yan Ning was elected as an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in the Division of Life Sciences and Medicine. Yan Ning, 45 years old this year, became a professor and doctoral supervisor at Tsinghua University before the age of 30, making her the youngest professor at Tsinghua University.

This is Yan Ning attending the “PolyU-HKSTP Joint Laboratory Symposium” held at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and delivering a keynote speech.

During her ten years of teaching at Tsinghua University, Yan Ning’s research achievements were selected twice as the annual top ten breakthroughs by Science magazine. She was also selected as a “Chinese Science Star” by Nature magazine for her outstanding contributions in protein structure.

In 2017, Yan Ning was appointed as the Shirley M. Tilghman Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University, and in 2019, she was elected as a foreign member of the National Academy of Sciences in the United States.

On November 1, 2022, Yan Ning announced her return to China from the United States and took up the position of founding dean of the Shenzhen Institute of Medical Science.

On November 2, 2022, Yan Ning posted on the Weibo platform to respond to her return from the United States. She said that she had already mentioned her initial intention of accepting Shenzhen’s invitation and establishing SMART in her ten-minute speech. “Honestly speaking, the achievements I have made today are not necessarily because I am smarter or more hardworking, but largely because I have been fortunate over the past twenty years.” Yan Ning also mentioned that it is a busy time now and said, “At Tsinghua, we have always emphasized ‘deeds speak louder than words.’ Please give us some more time.”

2023 Newly Elected Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences

2023 Newly Elected Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering

The “Watchman” in the Wheat Field

A few years ago, I watched an interview on CCTV with Professor Ru Zhengang, a wheat breeding expert at Henan University of Science and Technology. He is the recipient of the 2013 National Science and Technology Progress First Prize (as the primary contributor) and the 2016 He Liang He Li Prize. I was deeply impressed by him, a true people’s scientist who embodies his research in the field.

It is regrettable that such an expert has been rejected three times for membership in the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Although Professor Ru hasn’t published as many high-impact factor papers as Yan Ning, he has indeed made significant achievements.

The wheat variety “Bainong Dwarf Resistant 58” cultivated by Professor Ru Zhengang has been planted on over 260 million mu of land, resulting in an increase of 10.71 billion kilograms of wheat production and a yield benefit of over 20 billion yuan by the summer of 2014. This achievement has earned him the 2013 National Science and Technology Progress First Prize (as the primary contributor) and the title of “the number one wheat in the Huang-Huai area”.

People’s Daily’s interview with Professor Ru Zhengang:

Ru Zhengang: The “Guardian” in the Wheat Field (Pursuing Dreams and Talent)

In every 8 wheat buns, one comes from the wheat variety “Bainong Dwarf Resistant 58”. By the summer of 2014, a total of over 260 million mu of “Bainong Dwarf Resistant 58” wheat had been planted, resulting in an increase of 10.71 billion kilograms of wheat production and a yield benefit of over 20 billion yuan. This variety has been hailed as the “number one wheat in the Huang-Huai area”. Behind these numbers is a name that is constantly mentioned - Ru Zhengang. He is the Vice Dean of the College of Life Science and Technology at Henan University of Science and Technology, the Director of the Henan Provincial Hybrid Wheat Engineering Technology Research Center, and the Chief Expert of Wheat Disease and Pest Resistance Breeding in Henan Province. “Wheat seeds are my lifeline, I can’t live without them for a day,” Ru Zhengang said. Breeding superior seeds to ensure that farmers have enough food and clothing has been his lifelong pursuit. For 34 years, he has persevered for the sake of ensuring China’s grain reserves. “When I was young, my family had many siblings and we often couldn’t eat enough. My biggest dream at that time was to have a meal.” Ru Zhengang said, “When I chose to study agriculture in college, it was to provide as much help as possible to the farmers and achieve abundance.” In 1981, Ru Zhengang, a graduate of the Agricultural College, was chosen by Professor Huang Guangzheng, a renowned expert in the breeding field who had won the National Invention Second Prize, to enter the breeding industry. “Breeding is a dialogue between humans and plants, and wheat also has emotions,” Ru Zhengang still remembers the words of Professor Huang Guangzheng. He firmly remembers the different growth characteristics of thousands of wheat varieties and establishes an emotional connection with them, never separating for a moment. He has persevered for decades, guarding the experimental fields without the company of loved ones or the warmth of a family. To ensure the completeness and accuracy of scientific research data, Ru Zhengang manually threshes each experiment wheat plant one by one, taking more than a month to finish. In order to understand the real growth conditions of wheat in different regions, Ru Zhengang surveys the fields in various counties across the province, relying solely on public buses and his own two feet for transportation. In the early 1990s, there were few and unpunctual rural buses. To avoid delays, Ru Zhengang would get on the bus as soon as there was one available, even eating meals on the bus if he couldn’t make it in time. At that time, Ru Zhengang always carried three things with him: a shoulder bag containing tools and materials, a military canteen, and a package of preserved eggs. “Preserved eggs don’t spoil for a long time, so I can eat them whenever I get hungry.” In September 1996, the disease-resistant and high-quality wheat variety “Bainong 64” that he cultivated finally succeeded. The planting area reached 15 million mu that year, with a cumulative planting area of 70 million mu. It was listed by the Ministry of Agriculture as a key variety for cross-provincial promotion. The difficulties faced by the masses are scientific research topics for him. “In the breeding of ‘Dwarf Resistant 58’, every innovative inspiration comes from the farmers!” Ru Zhengang said. Over the past few decades, Ru Zhengang has traveled extensively throughout the Huang-Huai area, and a very important task of his is to ask the villagers to point out the flaws in the seeds he has bred. “Can the ears of wheat be bigger? Can the stem be shorter when there are more ears? Can the shorter stem be resistant to infertility, drought, and pests?” Ru Zhengang carefully noted these problems as his main research directions. “Farmers are the ones who dare to think and ask the most, often providing us with creative scientific research topics,” Ru Zhengang said. In order to understand the dynamic growth characteristics of high-yielding wheat roots, Ru Zhengang and his team have built a root observation box, a root observation wall, and the country’s first underground wheat root observation corridor. On May 25th, at Maozhuang Village, Langgong Temple Township, Xinxiang County, there is a research base of Henan University of Science and Technology. It is the country’s first wheat root observation corridor. A small patch of wheat is planted in the base. Walking down the stairs from the side, you will see a corridor about 50 meters long and 3 meters wide underground. The sides of the corridor are made entirely of large transparent glass, behind which is solid yellow soil. Following Ru Zhengang’s direction, you can see white, thin lines of roots fixed by the wheat behind the glass. The reporter saw that under the weak wheat seedlings, the roots have grown several meters deep. “Root system research has always been a weak area in wheat breeding and cultivation research,” Ru Zhengang said. The wheat root observation corridor can effectively be used to study the dynamic development and adaptability of wheat roots in different growth stages and environments. Cultivating robust and highly physiologically active root systems is the key to cultivating good varieties and increasing wheat production. In his experimental base, he has also built an intelligent greenhouse, an artificial climate chamber, an experimental wind tunnel, and other research platforms. These provide important methods and technical support for selecting wheat traits and serve as experimental platforms to solve the “problems” raised by farmers. In the hearts of the farmers, he is the “god of grain and wealth”. Ru Zhengang often says, “As agricultural science and technology workers, if you don’t help farmers increase their production and income, then you are nothing!” Maoyuan Tian, a villager in Maozhuang Village, still remembers the scene when Ru Zhengang guided wheat production in the early 1990s: at that time, the school was still in Huixian, and Ru Zhengang would ride his bike from there to Xinxiang, take a break at noon, and then ride all the way to Maozhuang Village, 50 miles away. As soon as he arrived in the village, he would rush to teach the villagers, and whenever he had time, he would go to the fields to see them. In order to make sure that they could see and understand clearly, Ru Zhengang squatted down, pulled out a few wheat seedlings, and carefully showed them to the villagers. “When farmers have questions, as experts, we should provide on-site guidance in a timely manner!” Ru Zhengang said. “The methods Professor Ru taught us are effective!” said Maozhuang Village resident Jing Shufang. He planted the new variety of wheat, “Bainong Dwarf Resistant 58”, last year, and the yield increased from a few hundred pounds per mu to 1300 pounds. “Professor Ru is truly the god of grain and wealth for us common folks!” Ru Zhengang has realized the dreams of farmers: he has applied materials mechanics to crop breeding. The lower part of the wheat stem is rigid, while the upper part is flexible. It has the ability to withstand pressures and resist distortion, supporting a yield of over 700 kilograms per mu. In actual production, a yield of 650 kilograms per mu remains intact even in a strong gale. It can withstand extreme low temperatures of minus 16 degrees Celsius during the seedling stage and can be planted in a wide range of regions. It has great flexibility in planting time, allowing for high yields whether sown early or late. It is highly resistant to stripe rust, stem rust, and powdery mildew, and moderately resistant to leaf blight. It is an ideal environmentally friendly wheat variety. Additionally, its cultivation is simple and suitable for large-scale mechanized harvest… In order to better serve the people with scientific and technological achievements, Ru Zhengang has led his team in constructing a “Subject + Team + Base + Company + Farmer” system for scientific and technological innovation and promotion, accelerating the development and transformation of new varieties.

Changes in the Selection Rules for Academicians and Congratulating Professor Yan Ning

Compared to previous years, there have been significant changes in the selection rules and a more open and fair process this year. Specifically, the changes are reflected in the following aspects:

  1. The eligibility criteria for candidates have been relaxed. Unlike previous years, the number of candidates is not limited. In particular, there are 655 people from the Chinese Academy of Engineering who have entered the list of nominees.

  2. The voting period for key votes has been significantly shortened, taking less than half a month to complete all voting. This approach has the benefit of reducing possible personal connections and considerations.

  3. There are two rounds of voting. In the first round, each branch of the academy is divided into six groups, and some experts (such as Changjiang Scholars, national-level talents, and outstanding young scholars) vote. It is worth noting that each group consists of approximately 60 experts, and each expert votes in isolation. During this time, all communication devices are surrendered, and experts are not allowed to leave the room for two days. There is also a dedicated person who supervises the process and accepts on-site reports. In the first round, 108 candidates are eliminated.

  4. The second round of voting takes place approximately three days after the first round. The evaluating panel for the second round consists of academicians, who are selected from the final list determined in the first round. In the end, 74 individuals are elected in the second round.

  5. The process of attending live defenses has been canceled, and instead, candidates only need to submit videos, PowerPoint presentations, and other electronic materials, simplifying the evaluation process.

Furthermore, congratulations to Professor Yan Ning for successfully being elected as an academician in the Department of Life Sciences and Medicine. On November 1, 2022, Professor Yan Ning resigned from her position at Princeton University and returned to Shenzhen to establish the Academy of Medical Sciences. On December 10, Shenzhen Medical College was officially unveiled, with Professor Yan Ning appointed as the dean. For this recommendation, Professor Yan Ning’s affiliations were Tsinghua University and the Academy of Medical Sciences, and her recommenders included Academician Sui Senfang and others.

The Unsung Heroes in Specialized Fields

Many people are paying attention to Yan Ning, some praising, some mocking, quite uninteresting.

Let’s talk about something else.

Among the teachers selected this time, some have been working in their field for decades, promoting people’s livelihood, and these teachers deserve great respect.

Among the female academicians elected this time, there is one whom I have spoken to, Professor Jin Meilin, who is engaged in animal vaccines.

At that time, she was in her fifties, sitting with a straight posture and a very good temperament, looking like she was in her forties.

At that time, we were just chatting, discussing the field she was working in (swine flu vaccine) and the kind of topics she was interested in.

Professor Jin spoke in a soft and gentle manner.

I don’t remember the other points of view, I only asked her how she viewed Wuhan. She felt that Wuhan was a pity, not developed enough, and many students would rather go to Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, or Hangzhou.

Wuhan has significant limitations in attracting students, and the limitations of agricultural studies are also substantial. Combining Wuhan with agricultural studies, there are some promising talents, but in the end, they do not stay, which is a pity.

All she can do is teach well (at that time she was still teaching, and she was excellent at teaching), guide her students well, hoping that some of them will stand out in the end, and also hoping that some students will be able to stay and achieve something.

Why is this impression so deep for me?

Because the field of animal vaccines is not as attention-grabbing as cancer or human immune system, this is the truth, and she candidly admitted it.

In many fields, they are really niche fields, not so popular and not so conducive to publishing articles.

Even if you have been in the field for decades, even if you are a big-name in the field, people outside the field might still not know you.

Quietly watering a pot of flowers, for decades, passing on the baton to the next generation. This is what most teachers do in their lifetime.

Very traditional, very solid.

There are her concerns, such as students finding it increasingly difficult to establish themselves; there is also her calmness, focusing on being a good teacher.

Even if she is elected as an academician, if we have the opportunity to meet in the future, I will still call her Professor Jin, not Academician Jin.

Academician is a recognition of the individual.

But “teacher” is a recognition from one generation to another.

In my opinion, in the list of these academicians, there are many teachers who have been deeply involved in their fields for decades, but ordinary people cannot see them.

During my undergraduate years, when my classmates were interning in aquaculture and animal husbandry, I actually witnessed a pond full of dead fish, with no solution from the locals. I also witnessed pigs infecting each other with diseases, with no way to help them.

So, adjusting water in a fish pond, vaccinating pigs, hybridizing citrus fruits, breeding rapeseed—these are all very small fields, but the achievements in these niche fields can help thousands of people solve industry problems.

During my undergraduate years, I also encountered fellow villagers who brought truckloads of citrus to the school, and I thanked the principal for providing technical support.

There are many achievements that you cannot see, but they truly promote people’s livelihood.

The continuous efforts in these niche fields deserve some applause.

Amazed by Yu Xiao’s academic achievement and Zheng Hai’s accolades!

One aspect is amazed that Professor You Xiaohu has finally been awarded the title of academician!

On the other hand, there is astonishment at the awards and honors of Academician Zheng Hairong! (PS: Academician Zheng was born in 1977 and graduated with a Ph.D. in 2006.)

A Heroic Woman, Youngest among 59 Elected Academicians, Top 3 in Age Ranking.

Heroine of Women, one of the 59 newly elected academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences this year, and one of the 5 female academicians!

At 45 years old, this academician can rank in the top three in China at this age…

Professor Yan Ning mainly researches structural biology.

The results of the additional selection of academicians for the two academies in 2023 have been announced. Are there any teachers you are familiar with among the newly elected academicians? What are your impressions of him/her?

In the field of structural biology, only a few people develop methods, while the majority are focused on structure determination. Among the latter group, Yan Ning’s level is conservatively among the top three in the world.

In this field, successful professors are often highly capable, but their students may not necessarily be. Structural biology is a discipline with excellent scientific achievements, but it can also be challenging in terms of scientific thinking and training. However, when it comes to the field itself, it does not affect our evaluation of Professor Yan Ning’s level.

First of all, there are quite a number of groups in the world that have electron microscopy. Many people have purchased the equipment but cannot produce good results, it’s just that most people are unaware of this fact. Of course, Shizhi Gong deserves credit for the transformation towards electron microscopy. He has an excellent vision and did not participate much in the previously highly regarded femtosecond laser field. Instead, he leveraged the domestically leading electron microscopy foundation at Tsinghua University to gain a first-mover advantage.

Secondly, sample preparation is where Yan Ning excels. To obtain good results in electron microscopy, high-quality samples are equally important. The membrane protein work done by Yan is not her expertise from the beginning, but she has independently developed a purification system through exploration, which is highly experienced but limited. The most challenging aspects in the field of structure biology are membrane proteins, complexes, and large proteins that are difficult to express. Therefore, what Yan has accomplished is extremely difficult, and she has done it very successfully.

Another factor is funding and resources. If others were given the same, could they achieve equivalent results? It is difficult.

There are not many labs in the world that have similar resources as Professor Yan Ning. There are only a few in foreign countries, while there are none in China. Their equipment is top-notch, just like Yan’s, and they may need even more funding. They may have slightly inferior personnel because labor costs are higher abroad, but the difference is not significant. Large research groups in the United States often have 20 to 30 people, but some technical staff may not work as hard. I’m not sure about Yan, but based on the article, she has at most 20 to 30 people, and it must be said that many of them are students, and the majority are very hardworking. In this situation, Yan Ning is the most prolific structural biologist today, which should already prove her top-notch scientific research capabilities.

The significance of structural biology lies mainly in its pure scientific value, which is greater than so-called applications. The extent to which our country should invest in basic research can be debated, but it is a completely separate issue from evaluating Yan’s abilities.

As for whether Yan has any flaws, disregarding the inherent flaws in this field, Yan doesn’t have many flaws. I feel that this field is both exhausting and does not cultivate individuals, but the achievements are among the cleanest in the field of biology today.

List of 2023 Chinese Academy of Engineering academicians.

The Youngest Academician: Yan Ning - 45 years old and extraordinary.

Usually, academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering give the impression of being well-read, white-haired old professors, and senior engineers, but Yan Ning is clearly an exception. At 45 years old, she is the youngest elected academician. To be so accomplished at such a young age is truly impressive.

Yan Ning, born in November 1977, is from Zhangqiu, Shandong. In 2007, she was recognized by Tsinghua University School of Medicine and became that “extraordinary” professor and PhD supervisor. In 2012, Yan Ning obtained the qualification of tenured professor and also received the title of Bayer Professor. However, that was not enough. In 2013, she went to the United States and became a tenured professor at Princeton University. This is a remarkable title, as she is the first woman to achieve this.

In 2000, Yan Ning left the Department of Biological Sciences at Tsinghua University. At that time, like a group of like-minded academic achievers, she dreamed of becoming a bridge between Chinese and foreign technologies, hoping to bring more advanced technology from abroad back to China. So she accepted the invitation from Princeton University in the United States and went there relentlessly to pursue her PhD. After spending a full 7 years in the United States, Yan Ning experienced the stark differences between the biotechnology fields in China and abroad. Overseas not only had advanced facilities, but also a more mature education system. After obtaining her PhD, she decisively decided to return to China, eager to use her knowledge gained overseas to quickly close the gap between Chinese science and international standards.

Yan Ning has always focused on the structure and mechanism of transmembrane transport proteins. She was the first to clarify the atomic-level structure of important transmembrane proteins such as human glucose transporter, eukaryotic voltage-gated sodium ion channels, and calcium ion channels, which have significant physiological and pathological significance. This not only provides a foundation for understanding related diseases, but also lays a solid foundation for drug development. In November of last year, Yan Ning announced her resignation from Princeton University in front of a large audience at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center, determined to return to Shenzhen. She has become the spokesperson for Shenzhen, attracting top scientists to “move back” and just a year later, she became the director of the Shenzhen Bay Laboratory. Truly remarkable.

Now, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering have announced the list of newly elected academicians, including Yan Ning. Looking at the age distribution of the newly elected academicians, the average age is 54.7 years, the youngest is 45 years old, and the oldest is 65 years old. 90 percent of the newly elected academicians are 60 years old or younger. At this moment, I can’t help but silently admire the continuous rise of our country’s top young scientists.

Yan Ning’s selection as a candidate

I’ve long said that Yan Ning would definitely make it.

First of all, her capabilities are definitely sufficient (I’m not talking about something like AlphaFold, her abilities are not solely focused on protein folding), whether it’s CNS or a foreign academicianship in the United States, as well as her academic research guidance abilities. But as we all know, having the capabilities does not necessarily mean she will be selected. Most of the candidates nominated are qualified.

I’m not saying that I know the details of the selection process (I’m just a small chili pepper), but I deduced it from the news. Some time ago, she made a high-profile move to Shenzhen to serve as the founding dean. Isn’t that the kind of responsibility that only an academicianship can take on? Why choose Shenzhen? It’s because of the resources (various resources) and positioning, right? Wasn’t it negotiated? Moreover, this version update was already advantageous for her. Combined with being a female scientist and her young age (45 years old, considered the youngest in this wave), it was a perfect timing.

Now, take a look at the timing of my response.

“What problems does ‘The Question of Yan Ning’ reflect in the current situation of scientific research in China? Does the doubt about ‘How many high-impact articles can you publish with this work?’ really exist?”

If it weren’t for the experts (academicians are all educators, scientists, science management experts, otherwise it wouldn’t be possible to have a series of scientific research related to “The Question of Yan Ning”), how would there be a “question”?
