World's largest telescope finished in China will help find aliens
China just finished building the largest radio telescope in the world.
FAST (Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope) is a $180 million project. The telescope marks China's latest effort to become a space power.
Made of 4,450 reflective panels, FAST measures 30 soccer fields in diameter and took 5 years to build.
The telescope will allow scientists to listen to radio waves up to 1,000 light-years away and search for intelligent alien life.
This will revolutionize the study of pulsars, quasars, and black holes — which all naturally emit radio waves.
