China just finished building the world’s largest single-aperture alien-hunting telescope

The Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) in the rural Guizhou province of China is 64% larger than Puerto Rico’s Arecibo Observatory single-aperture telescope, the former largest in the world, reports Engadget. FAST will become fully operational this fall when it will then be put to use listening to the universe, including looking for signs of extraterrestrial life.
