Better Facility: Better Insight into Cosmos

Scientists from China, Japan and Korea have begun using the world¡¯s largest radio telescope array jointly built through their joint efforts to explore deeper into the galaxy and super-massive black holes. On the basis of radio astronomical observation networks separately developed in the three countries, astronomers from these three countries co-built the world¡¯s largest radio astronomical observation network, consisting of 19 radio telescopes in East Asia that cover an area about 6,000 kilometers in diameter from Japan¡¯s Ogasahara and Hokkaido to China¡¯s Urumqi and Kunming. If supported by the astronomical observation apparatus installed on Japan¡¯s Lunar Device Kaguya, the diameter of this telescope array could be expanded to 24,000 kilometers. The scientists predicted that the East Asia VLBI observation program will be fully implemented in 2010.
