At 4:40 a.m., the airship hit 9,032 meters, above the mountain’s peak of 8848.86 meters, setting a new word record.

Weighing 2.625 tonnes, the floating airship has a volume of 9,060 cubic meters and its ground anchor vehicle weighs 90 tonnes.


The observation apparatus on the airship is mainly used to record atmosphere composition data and the water vapor transmission process in space. The measurement data includes black carbon, dust, carbon dioxide and methane, which are key elements in studying environmental changes on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

A 64-member team conducted the research. It is one of the 16 scientific research teams from China’s “Earth Summit Mission 2022” scientific expedition.

The researchers are from three affiliates of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, including the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, the Aerospace Information Research Institute and the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics.
