China has completed the construction of the largest alien-hunting telescope in the world

With this huge radio telescope scientists have much more chances to register any signals from aliens if they really exist!


FAST (Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope) is now the biggest radio telescope on the planet situated in the Chinese province of Guizhou. Its colossal plate consists of 4,450 reflector panels each being about 11 m (36 ft) long and its whole area is equal to 30 football fields. FAST’s design and framework are similar to the famous Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico, but the latter is smaller and less sensitive.


The main aim of the telescope will be detecting various radio signals from distant parts of the universe in order to find extraterrestrial intelligence. However, this is not FASTS’s sole mission. It will also help astronomers study the evolution of the universe, a mysterious phenomenon of dark matter and many other things.

The telescope is highly sensitive – its panels are able to change their angle within the accuracy of 1 mm!

Well it is the Chinese and they mostly a Pagan people. Read the Bible. All the answers to the UNIVERSE are in the BIBLE. The Bible is GOD'S OWN WORD. Genesis Tells Us that God created the UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING IN IT. God knew how man would react on earth and God is Not Stupid. God would not Create Life On another Planet or Galaxy and have it Run Amok like the CIVILIZATION ON EARTH. And they are not going to find HEAVEN WITH A TELESCOPE.

Well said Lee. Didn't know they built that thing, looks pretty big. They need to work on their smog & water pollution problem, a better use of their money. It's contaminating their food supply of which some makes its way here.

I could think of over a dozen religions off the top of my head that would disagree with you. What makes your god right when theirs are wrong? Do not hide behind the bible and say "god said so" because god has many names to many people and your interpretation is not the absolute end all be all just because your bible says so.
