China looking to built yet another giant telescope to detect aliens

China plans to build the world’s largest steerable telescope in a quest to detect dark matter, gravitational waves and possible alien signals. China already has the world’s largest telescope, the Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST). The new telescope will be located in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region and will be named as the Qitai 110m Radio Telescope (QTT). FAST covers lower frequencies as proposed for QTT, however both the telescopes will have an overlapping coverage of 150 MHz to 3GHz. This would mean that signals detected by one telescope could be confirmed by the other provided data is being analysed in real time.
