BEIJING, April 25 (China Space News) -- Wednesday marks China's fourth annual Space Day. The theme of this year's event is "pursuing space dreams for win-win cooperation". Domestic and international experts have gathered in Changsha city of Hunan province to discuss space technology and seek future collaboration.
