The May 2019 issue of That's Beijing is out now – paper-and-ink form citywide, digital pdf form right here or in your browser here. Editor-in-Chief Valerie Osipov introduces the magazine:

Have you ever laid in an open field at night, gazing up at the starry sky as you’re engulfed by total darkness and wondered if we’re all alone in the universe? It seems Chinese astronomers certainly have – and they’re making big moves to find out. Which is why we’re taking off and diving deep into something beyond our planet this month. Yes, we’re talking galaxies far, far away – more specifically, China’s contribution to the ambitious search for extraterrestrial intelligence. 

Having made news over recent years, it’s no secret that the country has been moving at full throttle when it comes to the galactic race. In this month’s cover story, That’s PRD Editor-in-Chief Matthew Bossons looks into China’s transforming space exploration technology, most notably the creation of the world’s largest radio telescope (nicknamed FAST), and its overall role in finally launching the supermassive hunt for other life. 

Elsewhere in the magazine:

  • Sarah Forman explores a crossover art exhibition in Shanghai and Hong Kong;

  • I catch up with instrumental post-rockers Explosions in the Sky before their gig in Beijing;

  • And Edoardo Donati Fogliazza tries out a new Japanese concept by the Bottega team. 

Until next month,

Valerie Osipov
