China’s Search for Aliens

China, always one to want the biggest and best, is now in the process of building the world’s largest radio telescope. It would be 500 meters in diameter, and require the relocation of, wait for it, 9000 people. Why, you may ask, does China want this telescope? Why, to better search for extraterrestrial life of course!

Also, fun fact, according to one of the scientists on the project, “if the telescope was filled with wine, each of the world’s 7 billion inhabitants could fill about five bottles from it.” #goals
