The Guizhou Provincial Development and Reform Commission Monday announced that it will launch the world's largest single-aperture spherical radio telescope as one of the state's key sci-tech infrastructure projects in the Buyi and Miao Autonomous Prefecture in south Guizhou Province.

The Chinese Academy of Sciences and Guizhou Province will join hands in constructing a 500m-aperture spherical radio telescope by making use of the innovative design of Chinese scientists and the unique karst terrain and extremely quiet electronic wave environment in Guizhou. This platform for astronomical observations and research has reached international advanced level. It will provide important support for the country to conduct study and research on dark matter and dark energy, the origin of the universe, the evolution of the space and the search for the origins of life outside the Earth.
