The Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST), located at a karst valley in Pingtang County of southwest China's Guizhou Province, was completed on Sunday morning, July 3, 2016, as the last of 4,450 panels was fitted into the center of the big dish. Scientists will then begin debugging and trial observation of the FAST. The project has the potential to search for more strange objects to better understand the origin of the universe and boost the global hunt for extraterrestrial life.
