The world’s largest and most powerful radio telescope is mounted on a mountain in southern China. On January 12, the program started completely. The official name of the telescope is the five-hinged-meter aperture spherical telescope, better known as its short name ‘fast’. China calls this telescope “Sky Eye” or “Sky Eye”.The Fast Telescope will search the corners of the deepest and darkest corners of the universe to find out if this world was created and whether life exists elsewhere.As the name implies, the telescope is about half a kilometer in diameter. The previous big telescope was Puerto Rico’s Arecibo observatory, which measures 305 meters in diameter.Before the construction of the Fast Telescope on September 2016, the Arisbo Radio Telescope was the world’s largest telescope in the category.Fast is not only the largest device, it is 2.5 times more sensitive than any radio telescope currently in operation.Talks began with the telescope in the 1990, but it took about two decades to get the results.For the first time in 2016 it tested its efficiency.The makers of Fast Telescope are hoping that the signals that this radio telescope can capture will reveal the mystery and evolution of the universe.Its main task is to search for gravitational waves.
At the same time it will study the dark elements of the universe and discover if there is a civilization elsewhere in the universe.The feature that telescopes are most excited about is the ability to quickly detect FRB’s data in the universe. Such intense energy bursts last only milliseconds.The reason for this kind of explosion is still a mystery to astronomers. Therefore, scientists will be keenly interested in any new data available in this field.The Arisibo Radio Telescope can collect as much radio waves as it can in twice its capacity.Min Yun, a professor of astronomy at the University of Massachusetts, says that Fast will greatly enhance our ability to detect cosmic signals, where our capabilities are still weak.
