China’s new radio telescope will have dangerous solar eruptions in its gaze

Posted by in categories: internet, space

It’s part of a wider project aimed at investigating dangerous solar eruptions.

China is building the world’s largest array of telescopes designed to study the Sun, a report from the South China Morning Post.

The array, called the Daocheng Solar Radio Telescope (DSRT), will help scientists better understand coronal mass ejections — massive solar eruptions that have the potential to knock out the world’s internet and disrupt global satellite services.

Work on what will be the world’s largest circular array for solar radio imaging is expected to be finished by the end of the year, supervisor says.
