China Daily: Scientists size up ‘Mother Goddess’ mountain

From China Daily Online:

China has built an automatic meteorological observation station at an elevation of 6,500 metres on Mount Qomolangma – or Mount Everest as it is also known – the world’s highest mountain.

The station, located at a narrow pass on Dongrongbu Glacier, will be used mainly for observing the condition of energy and materials conversion at high elevation areas, said Jing Zhefan, an associate professor in charge of the project.
