A military-led science program in China has constructed the world’s most sensitive radio telescope: the FAST radio telescope.
This behemoth will help search the cosmos for signs of life.
This telescope is 10 times as sensitive as any other.
The inner region sends out clock-like pulses of radiation and waves of charged particles embedded in magnetic fields.
