    When the world entered into the new millennium, the US made breakthrough in shale gas industry under a flat gas price level in the first decade, resulted in the US becoming the first oil and gas producer in the world even further. With abundant shale resource and in badly need of cleaner energy, China is now endeavoring to overtake others in shale gas industry and has become the leading producer after US and Canada, but there are still some problems. This paper points out the problems existing in the development of shale gas in China, such as lacks the knowledge of shale gas and oil formation, the complete set of technology and equipment system is not perfect, without standardized mineral rights management and entry-and-exit mechanism and non-standard environmental protection policies, and puts forward corresponding suggestions. To promote China's shale gas industry, we have to streamline the mineral rights management and landuse policies, environmental policies, technological policies, financial and taxation policies and industrial policies.

    To avoid technological surprise from outside and to create technologicalsurprise against rivals, the US DARPA promotes the emerging science and technology innovations, playing special roles as "science and technology vanguard" in the U.S. national security system. Facing the tides of the new scientific and technological revolutions, the development of science and technology, especially, the technologies of subversive nature, one sees opportunities and challenges with respect to the national security. In view of the science and technology's impacts on the national security, we should foresee the development of the emerging science and technologies, further improve the technology support system for the national security, and makea full use of the science and technology innovation as the dual engine of the economic and social development and the national strategic security.

    Based on the SCI-E, this paper makes a data investigation and a quantitative analysis of DARPA funding papers, aiming to provide some useful insight of the success of the DARPA. We analyze the publication trends and the author number trends, the DARPA's preference of choosing funded institutions, the DARPA's funded person's academic influence and research area, and the DARPA's funding area preference. It is shown that the DARPA chooses foreign participants to corporate, not denying to do so only for political reasons. The DARPA chooses most influential researchers to corporate. The DARPA focuses on specific time window to maintain the research innovation. Though the DARPA projects might fail sometimes, the DARPA continues funding these areas to maintain diversity.

    The US military is at the forefront in the field of the world maritime war theory. In order to advance the study of the development of the maritime war form and the maritime war theory in China, this paper focuses on the Distributed Lethality of the US navy. The relation between the theory and the practice of the distributed destruction and the intelligent war is analyzed to see the objective law of the maritime war and to confirm the historical inevitability of the concept of the Distributed Lethality. It is concluded that the Distributed Lethality is an important factor in the development of the maritime war.

    The carbon dioxide capture, utilization and geological storage (CCUS) is one of the key technologies to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in fighting against global climate change. With rapid economic development in China, the energy conservation and the GHG emission reduction are important, especially for the sustainable development of green gross domestic producst. In September 2011, "Technology Roadmap Study on Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage in China" was issued by the Department of S&T for Social Development, Ministry of Science and Technology of the People's Republic of China and the Administrative Center for China's Agenda 21. This first CCUS roadmap sets some milestone objectives in 2015, 2020 and 2030, as well as some suggestions for priority technical development of fundamental researches and applied technology researches for the demonstration objectives. The first milestone (2015) has just reached. This paper reviews the latest literature and expert panel discussions, and it is shown that China has built a number of CCUS pilot and demonstration projects, and the priority deployment has also made some progress, but on the whole the current progress lags behind the target by about 2-3 years. In this context, this paper suggests that, to achieve the milestone object of 2020, it is necessary to solve the financing problem of large scale integrated projects to improve the economic efficiency of CCUS technology, and at the same time, and to solve the scale-up problems of all key technologies of CCUS technology. Finally, it is shown that when setting new targets for a coming China's CCUS roadmap (updated edition), in addition to considering the development level of mainstream technologies and emerging technologies, the impact of national policies on choices and applications of the technologies for CCUS projects should be considered.

    A major requirement of microwave atmospheric sounder onboard geostationary satellite arises in the area of passive remote sensing and meteorological research. Developing geostationary microwave sounder is also a national strategy demand of China. The successful development of the CAS-ESA geostationary millimeter wave atmospheric sounder prototype based on synthetic aperture radiometer paves the way to reaching this goal. This paper briefly reviewed the research background and the current status of the relevant technology over the world, introduced the developing roadmap and achievements in china, stated the significance of the successful development of this prototype, and finally highlighted the prospect of near future application in China's Fengyun-4 mission.
