Daxing Airport 大兴机场

Daxing Airport
“China is set to build the world's largest airport, twice the size of Norfolk Island.
When the massive 54 square kilometre Beijing Daxing (Beijing South) International airport opens in 2017 it will have nine runways operating simultaneously, handling a staggering 370,000 passengers a day -- or an annual maximum of as many as 200 million people per year.
In comparison, London Heathrow, currently the world's busiest international airport, handles 68 million passengers annually.
Daxing will be slightly larger than the massive Dubai World Central International Airport (Al Maktoum) Airport, which will open to passengers later this year.
Along with servicing Beijing, Daxing airport will cater to nearby cities Tianjin and parts of Hebei.
The rural area of Daxing is an hour's drive from Beijing city centre, but the government is already looking at extending the metro rail system or building a high speed rail line.
Also, as Australian Business Traveller previously reported, according to China's official English language newspaper China Daily, flights will be split between the current Beijing Capital and new Beijing South airports according to airline alliance.
Star Alliance is firmly entrenched at member airline Air China's base at Beijing Capital's enormous Terminal 3, so it's likely that oneworld airlines (such as Qantas and Cathay Pacific) plus potentially SkyTeam airlines (including China Southern and China Eastern) will be shifted to Beijing Daxing.”

"Обломки российской межпланетной космической станции "Фобос-Грунт" упали в Тихий океан, заявил представитель министерства обороны России.
Он сослался на данные Главного центра разведки космической обстановки войск ВКО (воздушно-космической обороны). Согласно расчетам специалистов центра, "падение фрагментов аппарата "Фобос-Грунт" должно было произойти в 21:45 мск [17.45 GMT] в акватории Тихого океана".- http://www.bbc.co.uk/russian/science/2012/01/120113_fobos_grunt_down.shtml
