NANJING Forrest Lamp Jersey , June 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese space-monitoring ship Yuanwang-3 has completed a 27-day maritime calibration mission and returned to port in east China's Jiangsu Province Thursday.

The ship will take part in six maritime space monitoring missions as a part of the space expeditions scheduled for the second half of the year, which will include the launch of the Chang'e-5 lunar probe and BeiDou-3 satellite.

Yuanwang-3 has embarked on more than 40 expeditions in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic oceans, sailing more than 580,000 nautical miles.

Apart from the missions assigned to Yuanwang-3, Yuanwang series vessels will carry out a total of 16 maritime space monitoring missions in the latter half of this year.

The Yuanwang-1 and Yuanwang-2 ships were China's first-generation space tracking vessels, which first entered service in late 1970s, making China the fourth country to master space tracking technology after the United States, Russia and France.

SEOUL, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's consumer prices rose 0.8 percent in January from a year earlier, boosting concerns about deflation as it fell below 1 percent first in three months, a government report showed Tuesday.

The country's headline inflation had hovered below 1 percent for 11 months through October 2015, before rising to 1.0 percent in November and 1.3 percent in December last year, according to Statistics Korea.

The consumer price inflation, however, slipped into the zero-percent range once again in January, refueling worry about deflation that means lowered headline inflation amid economic slump.

The January fall was attributable mainly to higher base effect. As the government raised cigarette prices by about 80 percent from January 2015, it had placed upward pressures on headline inflation for the entire months of last year.
