The USA is building the largest radio telescope in the world

It is about a thousand antennas that will be connected together on an area of ​​10 dunams

The USA is preparing to build the largest telescope in the world, intended solely for collecting information about very distant worlds that may exist in the universe and that may have aliens and cultures other than those on Earth. The BBC It was reported that the ambitious project is called - HT1 "One Qatar Telescope" - because the array of radio telescopes it will consist of - 1000 installations - will be spread over an area of ​​ten thousand square meters (or 1 hectare, which is 10 dunams).
A significant part of the installations will have a diameter similar to a television dish antenna. The thousand radio telescopes will be connected to each other, electronically - and thus higher performance will be achieved than anything known to date. Project cost: 25 million dollars. Its construction will be completed in 2004. A major partner in the program is the University of California at Berkeley, as well as the research team of the "Sty" project (which deals with the search for extraterrestrial intelligence).
Since it began 39 years ago, in a serious way, in attempts to create "communication" with other worlds in the universe, 70 studies on this subject have been carried out so far. The results: absolute 0.



A huge telescope will search for intelligent life in distant stars

In a special project of the UN, a huge telescope will be built by 2015 that will enable scanning of over a million stars. The cost of the telescope - over 1000 billion dollars.
The United Nations plans to build a huge radio telescope that can scan over a million stars, in search of intelligent life.

The radio telescope, costing over $1000 billion, will be the most sensitive astronomical instrument ever built. It will also make it possible to warn against the collision of comets. The British "Sunday-Times" reports that the agreement to build the new telescope was signed last month at a meeting of the International Astronomical Union in Manchester, England. Scientists will work in the coming years to design the technology, which will allow the completion of the project by the year 2015, which was marked as the target year for the start of its operation.
Scientists hope to detect television and radio transmissions, or at least signal transmissions from aliens. "We will use it (the telescope) to study stars that are up to 1000 light years away from us," says Jill Tarter, a leading researcher in the field.
The telescope will also allow astronomers to show in detail the orbits of the stars and comets that threaten to collide with the Earth.
