The giant Tianan telescope in China opens its doors to the world


The disc with a diameter of 500 meters is built in natural lowlands in the landscape. China owns the intellectual property of FAST, the world’s largest full aperture telescope and the second largest single aperture, after the RATAN-600 telescope project in Russia.

China will allow astronomers around the world to use a giant radio telescope called FAST in the next few months. Also known as Thien Nhan or ‘Sky Eye’, this radio telescope has the largest aperture in the world, built in the Dai Oa Dang lowland, a natural basin in Binh Duong district, Guizhou province. southwest China.

The work, called the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) is made up of 4,500 aluminum plates and a giant disc that can be angled and directed to focus. in different areas of the sky.

The disc with a diameter of 500 meters is built in natural lowlands in the landscape. China owns the intellectual property of FAST, the world’s largest full aperture telescope and the second largest single aperture, after the RATAN-600 telescope project in Russia.

According to the China National Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), FAST accepts applications for observations of scientists around the world from midnight Wednesday (March 31).

The Chinese Academy of Sciences or CAS is the National Academy of Natural Sciences of the People’s Republic of China and is behind the country’s efforts to explore and exploit high technology as well as natural sciences. for yourself and the rest of the world.

Foreign scientists are now eligible to apply online. According to the reports, the results will be announced on July 20, and the observation will begin in August.

“Since its completion in 2016, the facility has been stable and reliable, creating a number of breakthroughs in the field of radio broadcasting and other research,” CAS said.

Although the ability to observe the sky is lower than that of some other advanced radio telescopes and has a lower resolution than multi-disc arrays, the FAST’s size gives it exceptional sensitivity, Di Li, the chief scientist at FAST, told leading science journal Nature in 2019.

According to China’s Global Times, the FAST radio telescope will provide research facilities to the world with a more open attitude.

Sky Eye will also provide more observational possibilities for the global scientific community and contribute China’s wisdom to building a community of the future for humanity.

First proposed in 1994, the project was approved by the China National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) in July 2007.
