China uprooting thousands to build telescope searching for aliens

China is forcibly moving more than 9,000 residents who live near the world’s largest radio telescope, currently under construction.
The telescope, called the Five-hundred-metre Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), is a massive dish with a diameter of, you guessed it, 500 metres. When it’s completed in September, China hopes it will further mankind’s efforts of detecting extraterrestrial life.
