|On the cover: On the cover: Nourished by the gigantic data and empowered by increasing computing facilities, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is setting us free from many burdensome routines. With AI muscles, we have become faster and smarter than ever. AI is reshaping the future of industries and our lives, enabling paradigm shifts in many disciplines of science and even paving the road to the metaverse. But scientists are still facing endless choices to navigate their innovation processes as previously. Meanwhile, collaborations are urgently needed amongst researchers from multidisciplinary studies. So we do hope the shared values of truth, righteousness, and peace can be cherished deeply to make our blue planet a better place for the whole ecosystem.|

|Chang¡¯E-5 reveals the Moon's secrets to a longer life|
Age and location of Chang¡¯E-5
The Moon is not only important because it enchants us in the night sky. The Earth-Moon system is critical for Earth's surface environment and even life, with lunar gravity controlling Earth's tides and rate of rotation. The origin of the Moon, from either a giant impact or a shrinking hot debris disk, remains debated and carries implications for either early Earth or even Earth's origin, respectively. The Apollo and Luna missions provided abundant samples informing the earliest lunar history, namely the evolution of the ¡°lunar magma ocean,¡± where less dense plagioclase crystallized and floated up to the surface, lending most of the lunar surface its white appearance from this anorthositic crust, but the dark patches on the Moon¡ªits ¡°mare¡± basalts, named for the large ¡°sea¡± of volcanic plains¡ªrecord the rest of lunar history.
