Lou Qinjian, secretary of CPC Jiangsu Provincial Committee, and Wu Zhenglong, governor of Jiangsu, paid a visit Tuesday to Wang Zeshan, winner of China’s top science award for 2017.

The two senior leaders conveyed their congratulations and greetings to the scientist, who is also an academician with the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Wang, who works with Nanjing University of Science and Technology, is one of the award winners. The other award winner is virologist Hou Yunde.

Wang Zeshan is known as China's Alfred Nobel for his contributions to the study of gunpowder, one of ancient China's four era-defining inventions.

During 60 years of researching gunpowder, Wang has designed several new propellant charging theories and technologies, helping to improve the launch range of China's artillery by more than 20 percent, lifting the nation's ballistic performance of similar artillery above international levels.
