See the unseen. Change the unchanged.
The Innovation ¡ª published by Cell Press in partnership with members of the Youth
Innovation Promotion Association (YIPA),a part of the Chinese Academy of
Sciences¡ªis a new broad-scope, open access journal publishing basic and applied
research that has impact for the benefit of society.
Earth, home of human beings, is 70% water and 30% land which has nurtured splendid civilizations and flourishing lives. The cover story of this issue reflects the evolution of Earth by merging an unknown planet in a unified scene with different landscapes throughout the history such as glacier, desert, ocean, mountain, river and magma. The contrast between the past to reality can best illustrate our respect to our motherland. It is not only the subjects of geoscience studies, but also the common goal of all multidisciplinary research and the shared duties of mankind to understand, care and protect our planet to build a better future.

Diagrammatic maps related to the Sichuan-Tibet railway in China


In China, a new ¡°epic project¡± named the Sichuan-Tibet railway linking Chengdu and Lhasa is in the construction phase. This 1,592-km-long railway passes through the western Sichuan basin, subsequently climbing 5,000 m and running across the ¡°roof of the world¡± Tibet plateau, which is dubbed the ¡°Sky-High Road¡± (Figure 1).1 Over the past decades, the region along the Sichuan-Tibet railway was recognized as the ¡°forbidden zone¡± for railway projects, resulting from the world's most remarkable topographic relief, the most active tectonic movement, the most numerous mountain hazards, and the most vulnerable ecological environment.
