lies that the Chang’e 4 probe served as a pioneer in the history of human lunar exploration.

According to the IAU naming rules, the landing site name has the prefix of Statio in Latin. And so far onl

y two places have such a prefix, the first being the landing site of Apollo 11, Statio Tranquillitatis.

Zhinyu, Hegu and Tianjin are the names of stars in China’s ancient star chart, as the three pits in the lunar crater formed a shape similar to these three celestial bodies.

Mount Tai is one of the five most famous mountains in China in East China’s Shandong province and stands 1,545 me

ters tall above sea level. The central peak, Mons Tai, in the lunar crater measures 1,565 meters in height from its base.

In August 2010 and October 2015, China had applied to name the landing sites of Chang’e 1 and Ch

ang’e 3, and gained approval, and in January this year, China applied to the IAU for the five new names.

So far, a total of 12 lunar features have been named by China.

Naming entities on lunar surfaces started in the 17th century in Europe, and in the 20th century, the U

nited States and the former Soviet Union had the most names due to their lunar explorations.

orwegian-born John Hou Sæter, a midfielder with Beijing Guo’an, received his temporary Chinese ID card Tuesday, becoming the first naturalized Chinese footballer.

Known as Hou Yongyong in China, the 21-year-old is expected to make his Guo’an debut in the Chinese Football Assoc

iation (CFA) Super Cup match between Shanghai SIPG and Beijing Guo’an next weekend, according to The Paper.

Guo’an has also registered him up for the upcoming AFC Champions League.

It has also been predicted that he may receive a national team call-up in the future.

Hou Sæter made his debut for Norwegian side Rosenborg in a domestic cup game against Orkla F

K in 2014. The appearance made him, at 16 years and 101 days, Rosenborg’s youngest ever senior player.

In September 2014 he made his debut in the Norwegian top f

light against Aalesund, coming on as an 81st-minute substitute in a 3-0 win. This made him his sid

e’s youngest ever league debutant, at 16 years and 258 days, beating the previous record by nine days.

Speaking on the speculation that Hou Sæter may one day play for the Chinese national side, h

is mother, Hou Yurong, said that it would be “both my wish and his own choice. I’m always his biggest fan.”

China lost 3-0 to Iran in late January in the Asian Cup quarterfinal, conceding all three goals due to defensive errors. “When you face a strong team like Iran, you

have to avoid making the mistakes. I did not expect we lost the game in this way,” China coach Marcello Lippi said.

With the Olympic qualifying tournament and the 2022 World Cup quali

fying campaign around the corner, China faces an uphill battle with a limited squad.

Hou Sæter’s versatility has been praised by Guo’an head coach, Rog

er Schmidt, who has said the midfielder can play a number of positions across the pitch.

Naturalization has become increasingly popular in international football in recent

years, and has been used by Japan, the Philippines, and AFC Asian Cup holders Qatar.

The bureau is soliciting public opinion on the draft until Feb 20.

With the new standard, major polluting gas from light-duty vehicles, including ca

rbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide, will be reduced by about 50 percent and em

issions of particulate matter will be reduced by about 40 percent, according to the bureau.

For heavy-duty diesel-powered trucks, the emissions of nitrogen oxide and particulate matter are expected to drop by more than 60 percent, it said.

Mobile sources, mainly vehicles, contributed 45 percent of locally generated

hazardous particles known as PM2.5 in 2017, outnumbering all other types of sources, according to the bureau.

Beijing has seen continuous improvement in its air quality. The PM2.5 density in th

e capital in 2018 stood at 51 micrograms per cubic meter, down by 12.1 percent year-on-year.

Officials and experts have said, however, it could be increasingly challe

nging for the city to further reduce air pollution after the local government has taken all ma

jor measures that could achieve quick results, including the shifting of bulk coal to clean energy as a heating source.

d inclusive world economy, China’s ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming, said in London on Thursday.
