  • The Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST) is a Chinese mega-science project funded by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) of the People's Republic of China. The National Astronomical Observatories of China (NAOC) is in charge of its construction and subsequent operation. Upon its expected completion in September 2016, FAST will surpass the 300-meter Arecibo Telescope and the 100-meter Green Bank Telescope in terms of absolute sensitivity in the 70 MHz to… CONTINUE READING
