    Nuclear science is a broad and diverse discipline which bridges microscopic particle physics and mesoscopic atomic/molecular physics. From the hot dense soup of quarks and gluons in the first microseconds after the Big Bang, through the nucleosynthesis, to the explosion of stars in cosmos, nuclear physics is fundamental to our understanding of the universe. At the same time, even after more than 100 years' development, the field of nuclear physics is still vigorous. Moreover, the development of nuclear science and technology has brought new opportunities and challenges to mankind. In this review, we briefly review the frontiers and advances of nuclear physics in 2022, which have provided unprecedented contributions to the fundamental science, national security, and other social applications.

    COVID-19 has a great impact on human life. After the outbreak of the epidemic, global scientific research institutions and pharmaceutical companies responded quickly and stepped up the research and development of vaccines and antiviral drugs. A series of therapies such as innovative mRNA vaccines, antiviral neutralizing antibodies, and small molecule antiviral drugs emerged. However, with the emergence of a variety of COVID-19 variants, the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines, neutralizing antibody and small molecule drugs greatly reduced, which constantly posed new challenges to the development of COVID-19 vaccines and drugs. This article reviews the research and development progress of COVID-19 vaccines and drugs based on literature and commercial database information. By Nov 2022, there had been more than 30 COVID-19 vaccines and more than 30 anti COVID-19 drugs approved or granted EUA, and many vaccines and drugs in clinical trials. China led the world in the research and development of COVID-19 vaccines and anti COVID-19 drugs.

    With the gradual development of the concept of resilience in planning and governance, the research and construction of resilient cities gained a new heat in 2022. By reviewing and analyzing the national policies, scientific fund guidelines, important reports, conferences and academic papers in 2022, this paper conducts a systematic review from five aspects:theoretical research on resilient urban planning, resilient urban response to climate change, resilient urban response to public events, resilient urban governance improvement, and resilient urban construction practice. It is proposed that China should form a sound technical route and policy base at the city level, coordinate with the control content of national land and space planning, guide the resilience construction content in various fields, and form the "four beams and eight pillars" of resilient city planning. At the same time, the government should set up a consortium with enterprises and research institutions to formulate detailed standards and guidelines for the construction of resilience planning in various fields and strengthen the planning transmission system. The overall guidance of the follow-up research and practice is the strategy of resilience building in response to "carbon risk".

    In the field of launch vehicles, the US, Russia, Europe and other countries accelerated the research and development of large carrier rockets in 2022 but the progress was mixed. The US and Russia launched multiple reconnaissance satellites as planned and space-based reconnaissance capabilities were constantly upgraded and improved. The US, Russia and China accelerated the development and deployment of advanced communication satellite systems with high throughput, high speed and anti-interference to effectively meet the communication needs of future operations and develop navigation capabilities in complex confrontation environments. The US high track wide field of view missile early warning technology test satellite would begin operation after completing in-orbit tests, with a certain hypersonic weapon early warning tracking test ability. As for the space control aspects, the US, Russia, Japan, Canada and other countries continued to strengthen their in-orbit debris clearing, in-orbit operation, and heaven and earth re-shuttle, while space security issues became more complex and changeable. To develop multiplatform ground-, sea- and space-based space situational awareness systems, the US held exercises such as "Space Flag", "Black Sky" and "Global Sentinel 2022" to steadily promote the space situational awareness capability of integrating heaven and earth.
