Lists of China's and the world's top 10 sci-tech news events, jointly selected by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering, were announced Saturday in Beijing.

The 10 major China's scientific and technological news events included the first-ever soft landing on the moon's far side by Chang'e-4 probe, the discovery of the largest ever stellar black hole by Chinese astronomers, as well as the successful in-orbit tests of the country's first space-based gravitational wave detection experiment satellite Taiji-1.

The development of the new type of brain-inspired chip by Chinese scientists and the discovery of a lower jaw fossil from the ancient Denisovans who lived around 160,000 years ago were also selected.

On the list of the world's top 10 sci-tech news events, the release of the first black hole's image, the first landing and sample collection of Japan's Hayabusa2 space probe on the asteroid Ryugu, as well as the grant of the first Ebola vaccine's marketing by the European Commission were included.

It was the country's 26th annual selection of sci-tech top news events. (Xinhua)
