The world's largest telescope, FAST, is at work!
The world's largest telescope called fast, which is the size of 30 football fields in China, has been operational after 3 years of testing. The huge telescope will help scientists uncover the secrets of the universe.
Built as a result of a 5-year study in Guizhou province in southwest China, the FAST telescope costs $ 170 million. FAST, meanwhile, stands for a 500-Metre Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope.

The telescope will gradually be available to astronomers around the world. It will thus serve as a powerful tool for uncovering mysteries about the formation and evolution of the universe.

The telescope, which can collect 38 GB of data per second, is described as China's “eye in the sky.” The telescope, which will search for natural hydrogen in galaxies, will detect faint pulsar (neutron stars that emit radio waves into space) signals.

It will also help research life in space. Jiang Peng, the project's chief engineer, said he expected the telescope to make some important scientific discoveries in the next two to three years.
Li Kejia of the Kavli Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, based at Peking University, stressed that the telescope in question could do great work in unearthing unknown stars and even in the search for extraterrestrial life.
Radio telescopes are described as receivers formed from dish antennas that capture and amplify waves in the radio region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The Fast telescope has detected 102 new pulsars in its 3-year test phase.
