CHINA Humans since ages have been fascinated about space and what lies beyond. Humans have always been trying to find extra-terrestrial life basically the presence of aliens and whether there are other habitable planets in the universe other than earth. In the 20th century, we have sent many messages in space hoping that they would be replied by some other life form.
The recent videos released by the Pentagon which were said to be of UFO’S (unidentified flying objects) have again resurfaced the belief in people that there definitely is some life beyond earth. CHINA It has been reported that China is preparing for finding extra-terrestrial life with the help of the world’s largest single-aperture radio telescope which is solely dedicated to search for these life forms and potential planets which are habitable in September.
The five-hundred-meter aperture spherical telescope (FAST) is present in Guizhou, china will be able to scan twice the area covered by the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Ricco which earlier held the record of the largest single-aperture radio telescope. It said to deliver reading three or five times more sensitive CHINA than the Arecibo observatory’s telescope, which could actually lead to the finding of the alien life which scientists have been looking for years in the universe.
The telescopes which have a height of 16,000 foot was proposed by the Chinese government in 1994 but its funding for construction was approved in 2007. The telescope has 4500 36-foot triangular panels formed into a dish with a 33-ton retina device which is suspended above it at a height of between 460 feet and 525 feet. The facility which is responsible for monitoring the telescope is built-in the Pingtung county for a total cost of $269 million.
This led to the relocation of approximately 9,000 people and for the initiation of its construction a 65-person village had to be emptied CHINA and destroyed. The telescope was operational in January but scientists believed that more electromagnetic interference could be removed for more accurate readings.
The scientists are eager to find some narrowband signals coming from planets which they suspect have extraterrestrial life. The satellite won’t only find extra-terrestrial life but also gather data from black holes, nebulas and distant galaxies. This could lead to a big break for the scientist who has been trying to find signs of extra-terrestrial life forms which could also help us to know about how life originates don earth and about how exactly the universe formed.
