Mr Nguyen Viet Hung

1. Nguyen Viet Hung, 28, a PhD student at New South Wales University in Australia, was the only Vietnamese scientist among the 300 panel speakers who had scientific research presented at ISME 17, the biggest international microbiology conference.

Hung discovered eight new species of bacteria and found a method to study their characteristics so as to know what kind of investment is best. This provides solutions to prevent epidemics in aquaculture and agriculture.

2. A group of scientists from the Vietnam Institute of Geodesy and Cartography (Vigac) have designed a self-propelling ship which can replace workers who carry out measurements.

Recent findings by Vietnamese scientists and their co-workers have made significant contributions to the world’s industries.

The vessel is made of composite plastic, embedded with data recording software, online camera, satellite navigation system, an antenna, a gauge and a mini computer to store the data and send it to the system via radio signals. 

This vessel can measure at the depth of 1,000 meters and can also run in shallow water without a driver. 

3. Using the global system of measurement stations to measure large earthquakes, scientists have detected and analyzed the signal of J-phase seismic waves in the inner core of the Earth. This achievement is compared to finding of ‘holy grail’ because the J-phase is very weak and difficult to be detected.

The study confirms that the Earth's core is solid, but it is softer than described in all previous studies. This valuable information can be used to understand the formation of other planets or how the Earth's magnetic field operates.

The capture of the seismic signal in the Earth’s core put an end to an 80-year study which began after the inner core was discovered.

The co-author of the study was Pham Thanh Son, currently a doctoral student in Geosciences and Geophysics at Australian National University.

4. The Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology has signed a contract on designing and manufacturing a carrier rocket that will carry high-altitude atmospheric data collection equipment.

The missile will have two layers and can fly at a height of over 40 kilometers. The project will be implemented in 24 months, starting in 2018.

5. Le Thai Son, 31, from Vinh Phuc province in Vietnam, now working for Nokia Bell Labs in Stuttgart, Germany, is one of the top 35 under-35 creators in the world in 2018 as listed by MIT Technology Review.

Son’s research work is about increasing the capacity of fibers by several times, from 40 gigabytes to 256 gigabytes per second. This is the world record for optical fiber transmission. The invention is expected to change the world's telecommunications industry.
