He Yujie (2nd from right in the back row) visited the Leng Hu Mars Camp in Qinghai, which features a striking resemblance to the landscape of Mars. The participants studied the geological features near the Mars Camp, learnt how to make a solar-powered Mars rover and explored the challenges of living on the red planet. The camp site also has excellent conditions for astronomical observations.
HE Yujie, together with the other campers, had a precious opportunity to visit the Xinglong Observing Station of the National Astronomical Observatories in Beijing to study the development of optical and radio astronomical observation in China.
