讲座摘要: This presentation focuses on the world largest single 500-meter diameter spherical radio telescope (FAST). Firstly, its scientific objects such as astronomy observing, deep space exploration and finding intelligent of the universe are shown. Secondly, the innovative design, simulation and control technologies are investigated. Thirdly, three scaled models` construction and practical experiments are highlighted to overcome the key technologies. Finally, the engineering implementation of the FAST is discussed to demonstrate the engineering feasibility of the novel design idea.
