|Title||Top 12 Fields of Big Science and Technology in Korea|
Stands for the fields of science and technology that need enormous capital and human resources as well as requiring large research facilities among basic science and industrial technologies.
The major big science fields performed in the United States and OECD as well as the details of Korea’s big science and technology have been analyzed in details to classify the big science and technology into a total of 12 fields in Korea.
Top 12 Fields of Big Science and Technology in Korea
1.Aerospace: Research facilities such as space based earth observation facility, space vehicle development, satellite probe related ground facility, space object tracking & monitoring facility, satellite communication facility and space resource development facility
2.Astronomy: Research facilities to observe celestial body such as space creation theory research facility(movement from space), optical telescope or radio telescope
3.Ocean: Research facilities for marine resource & energy development, marine science investigation & deep sea exploration and support of marine environment technology
4.Polar: Research facilities related to the research of resource, climate and ecosystem through the observation of polar region which is undeveloped region
5.Bio: Research facilities for clarification on the functions and bio-structure of human genes and proteins or maintaining stability of ecosystem as well as securing and preserving biological resources
6.Atomic Power: Research facilities related to the various atomic power using nuclear fission reaction(collision as neutron or condition the atomic nucleus being split into two or more atomic nuclei spontaneously)
7.Nuclear Fusion: Research facilities using nuclear fusion reaction(reaction of two hydrogen atomic nuclei being combined)
