After the collapse of the giant Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico, astronomers in the world demanded new giant telescopes for observation needs, so China decided to open the half-kilometer-diameter giant telescope in its country to world scientists.
World’s largest telescope
10% of the observation time of the giant “Sky Eye” telescope in China is now allocated to research requests from abroad. The new application will start from April 1, and foreign astronomers will be able to do research on the telescope in China.
Sky Eye is currently the largest spherical aperture telescope in the world. With this telescope, it is possible to observe pulsar stars or other energy-emitting objects in the universe. In this way, China will have first hand the results obtained in the discovery projects of scientists around the world.
