On July 3rd, 2016 the construction of the largest radiotelescope in the world has been completed. FAST (Five-hundred-meter-Aperture Spherical radio Telescope) was built in China and its concept was first proposed in 1994, but because of the logistical setbacks of finding an appropriate site for the enormous dish, the construction works started only in 2007.
In the coming months, the team responsible for the operation of FAST will be engaged in testing the telescope’s many delicate systems to ensure that it is ready for its first set of observations, which are set to begin sometime in September this year.
