BEIJING, Feb. 7 -- China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) announced on Saturday that it is working to make reflection panels for the world's top radio telescope.

The company hoped to complete the first of 4,450 such panels in May, which are designed to be fixed on the telescope that has a diameter of 500 meters.

The telescope, under construction in China, is designed to be the world's largest and most sensitive radio telescope by completion.

Zheng Yuanpeng, a CETC engineer in charge of panel making, said the telescope will be twice as sensitive as the Arecibo Observatory operated by the United States.
