Han Cinlin, a researcher at the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said the world's largest radio telescope observed 3 times more pulsars than any other telescope in the world when it was active, Chinese agency Xinhua reported.

Han said that the telescope, whose installation was completed in 2016 and started regular observations in January 2020, has recorded more than 900 pulsars so far.

Pulsars, which form in the exploding cores of dying giant stars, provide scientists with the opportunity to observe the laws of physics under extreme conditions with their high density and fast rotation.

Installed in a deep karst depression in southwestern China's Guicou province, FAST has become the "world's largest radio telescope" with its 500-meter diameter dish, surpassing the 300-meter Arecibo Telescope in the US overseas territory of Puerto Rico.

The giant telescope, used to detect radio waves emitted by stars, galaxies and black holes, has been recording regular observations since January 2020.
