    Those Chinese scientists are so young, must be in their 20's. I learned the average age for China's space scientists is also below 30.

    they are probably engineers and not scientists. The scientists I'm sure are probably much older. BUT...then again, I've been fooled by many asian people, they look like in their late 20s but are in their 40s.

    WHAT DO YOU GUYS EAT CUZ I WANT SOME??? :p:

    I m Chinese so I can tell for sure those people are in their 20's . I agree that people from different racial groups do have trouble telling each other's age sometimes.

    The bulk of China's scientific establishment are young people due to the rapid expansion of higher learning institutions in the 2000s. Many of the engineers who built China's infrastructure projects are in their 20 and 30's, some as project heads. Same with many other areas.

    The lead designer for JF-17's radar was also young when he first started. He received scepticism from the customer due to his age, equating this with lack of experience. This is one of the downsides of rapid growth, there isn't a large group of past generation scientists to guide them.

    This lady is a researcher for the Beidou program. She isn't exactly young (35) but might be perceived as young for a scientist working on an important national project.

    Eat lots of fruits and veggies, drink water and tea (Chinese often drink warm water), avoid soda and other sweets, moisturise your skin, use medicinal herbs in your soups and dishes. It is not really a secret, just tradition.
