World’s biggest radio telescope near completion

Construction on the world’s biggest radio telescope is underway in Guizhou Province in southwest China. The Five-hundred-meter Single-Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) is due to be completed in September. In a few days’ time, its last reflector panel will be installed. When it’s fully functional, the telescope should be able to detect radio signals from the deep universe, more than 1,000 light years away. It will help the search for intelligent life in outer space and bring new discoveries about the universe.
