The players with good mathematics have almost figured it out. The CCTV reporter ran a circle on the Skyeye Telescope and took 810 hours Second, the distance is about 1.64 kilometers, which is almost the same as the theoretical calculation of 1.57 kilometers. Considering the influence of the frame, the actual distance is quite accurate.
It took 810 seconds to run 1.6 kilometers. From the speed, the running speed of CCTV reporters is quite leisurely.
FAST was conceived in 1994 by the late Chinese astronomer Nan Rendong. It took 22 years to complete and was put into use on September 25, 2016, and entered the commissioning period. On January 11, 2020, FAST passed the national acceptance and officially opened for operation.
FAST has my country’s independent intellectual property rights and is the world’s largest single-aperture and most sensitive radio telescope.
Since its inauguration in 2016, FAST has discovered more than 240 pulsars in four years. In the 50 years since the first pulsar was discovered in 1967, humans have discovered only more than 2,700 pulsars.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences announced that the “China Sky Eye” will be released to the world in 2021, and researchers around the world can apply to use FAST for cosmic observation.
