Chinese 500 m-diameter eye in the sky 25 day run to find alien Military Channel – Sohu actv

Chinese 500 m-diameter "eye in the sky" 25 day run to find alien Military Channel CNN – Sohu (CNN) September 22nd article, the original title: China giant telescope began to search for extraterrestrial life of human beings in the search for extraterrestrial life is to make great efforts. Search work has also been a greater degree of attention. This week, the world’s largest telescope will be completed in China, which makes scientists excited. The 500 meter aperture spherical radio telescope is equivalent to the size of 30 football fields. This makes it possible to detect radio signals, or even life signals from distant planets. Dedicated to the detection of extraterrestrial intelligence agency METI International chairman Douglas fanco (Douglas Vakoch) said: "compared to the earlier detection of extraterrestrial life, China new telescope can detect faster and farther." Is located in the southwest of China, 500 m diameter spherical radio telescope on the Karst lowlands built (FAST), will start operation in September 25th. FAST vision is more open, the range of its vision is nearly 2 times the U.S. Arecibo radio telescope. The Arecibo telescope is the world’s largest single aperture telescope in recent 53 years. Although the Russian RATAN-600 radio telescope is longer than FAST, the former is not a single aperture telescope, and the former is much smaller than the latter. FAST project began in 2011. Fanco said, by virtue of its incredible sensitivity FAST, hydrogen distribution can even record distant galaxies. It also helps scientists to detect more pulsars, scientists have been able to detect gravitational waves. But for many, the most exciting thing is to use FAST to search for extraterrestrial life. The recent discovery of 3 life – loving planets outside the solar system has reignited the debate over the existence of extraterrestrial life. FAST can detect other planets that can’t be found by other telescopes. It lays the foundation for China’s space research, to study the full horsepower. But FAST also has some limitations. For example, it can’t map the orbits of comets or asteroids. FAST may help explain the origin and structure of the universe, but it can not be able to destroy human civilization or near Earth Asteroid warning. Chinese astronomers will give priority to the use of FAST two to three years, after which the world’s astronomers can use.相关的主题文章:
