The altitude gravitational wave telescope will be used to detect faintest echoes resonating from the universe that can be used to reveal more about the Big Bang theory along with gathering precise data on primordial gravitational waves in the Northern Hemisphere.
The project was initiated by the Institute of High Energy Physics, National Astronomical Observatories, and Shanghai Institute of Microsystems and Information Technology. This observatory will be among the world's top primordial gravitational wave observation bases, alongside the South Pole Telescope and the facility in Chile's Atacama Desert.
This development comes after China in last September commissioned the world's largest radio telescope in a mountainous region of southwest China's Guizhou Province. The radio telescope aims to locate more strange objects in space, gain a better understanding of the origin of the universe and boost the global hunt for extraterrestrial life.
