Rumor of foreigner running telescope denied
    2017-August-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) denied U.S. media reports that China plans to hire a foreigner to run the world’s largest radio telescope in Southwest China’s Guizhou Province.

The CAS said on its Sina Weibo account Saturday that no such recruitment exists for the 500-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) in Pingtang County, Guizhou Province, and that the post of FAST chief scientist was filled when the project was launched in July 2016.

However, the CAS has not identified the chief scientist.

CAS said it will continue to support, and encourage, the participation of top Chinese and international scientists in FAST-related work.

The U.S. news magazine Newsweek reported on its website Thursday that China is offering a 1.9 million yuan (US$ 223,000) research grant and free housing plus other perks for the foreigner-only job.

The world’s largest radio telescope was completed in July 2016, when the remaining the 4,450 panels were installed in the big dish, the Xinhua News Agency reported. (SD-Agencies)
