-- joining us live on -- now Allison Barrie who is here to talk to us about the article that you just have.
Coming out on foxnews.com.
Called detecting threats from outer space.
There it is the world's largest telescope to detect threats from outer space the more.
Complete title of this article so what are we talking about here is this about sensitive radio telescopes you're gonna have to start.
Beginning for us great typical of bill largest and most sensitive radio telescope ever built -- command -- and -- literally out.
And so what that means is you know gives a whole new capability to -- explain the universe and of course from my defense perspective.
Check out what's out there -- out of there are aliens -- to have an appetite to you know becoming paying us a visit and I'm feminine fashion so.
That's a defense perspective but I think it's a fun -- that's an important one.
And being the scale this is huge it surprises me that people aren't talking about it.
They're expecting this -- built in 20/20 four.
Common rape this year they're in 2012 they're deciding sites that they're debating between India come a comedy -- so large.
Is that you have to involve two countries -- combination of Australia New Zealand or South Africa and the Indian islands.
An Indian Ocean islands.
I Limbaugh loses its very widespread to -- essentially a mix of tissues and white aperture aperture ray devices.
And to be about 3000 dishes that's quite a few obviously right.
Any of the volume of data about a fun fact for us I know reviewers like -- are fun -- enough they'll have a processing power of about one billion PCs.
And -- have enough optical fiber to rapped twice around earth.
And enough raw data to fill 151000064.
Gigabyte iPods every day -- on such a huge amount of information.
And terribly exciting that it's under way.
And not something we're hearing much about but.
It's like countries involved.
At the -- -- the United States is involved great brands involved -- involved France Germany Portugal Poland.
You -- -- lots of countries involving brakes -- about it.
Lots of companies lot of big defense contractors are sharing their know how trying to get involved.
-- -- says that the question is -- what's the mission here.
And I think there's kind of three or four main missions one and seriousness -- seriousness is BS you explain how galaxies evolved.
The nature of dark energy which I think is really cool and I don't understand enough about and also look at how stars are born help black holes are formed.
And house if he can't Einstein.
It just really really looking -- times his theory of relatively good relativity -- and and -- -- just the general -- concept of gravity.
A threat the university.
The final one from the defensive pieces that are we alone and what I think is typical of just to give our viewers a couple of examples it's going to be so powerful that it -- to detect anything at this rate I think it's.
Fifty -- -- fifty light years away.
Radar nearly airport -- such as we've -- can't hurt.
If you're on another planet fifty light years away -- -- detected so revealed that thing very very weak extra terrestrial.
-- and signals which is pretty cool he -- What you said you were surprised that people haven't been picking up on this did you find this story and how is this just like one in the business I don't know I don't I -- -- -- seventy institutes in twenty countries to be involved or anything like this.
And you know certainly first time I'm hearing about it too.
You know is this something that we're gonna be hearing more often think they'll be more important so and I mean I try and word games to bring to our viewers that sort of stuff that we might be talking about in the business it's just not making into.
Mainstream media he's and it's really kind of all kind of water cooler talk for us and I hope that's recommend by an advantage to our viewers and it's costing one point five billion British -- says almost three billion times so.
Even that itself surprises me that we're not -- -- talking about it a bit more.
And even by 2019 they're expected -- actual science out of it so.
That's a really short time from -- house and his huge scale projects are making the line.
Forever -- don't get anything out of them but.
They're -- some hard science expecting that -- so I'm pretty could jump from establishing a site this year to actually getting hard science I'm excited about it and you know I think it's a fun story for our viewers and it is a lot of interest there and it's honeymooners and quite timely with the school solar incident today yeah I do we detect these threats matters is in -- hope we get we're headed into conference so interesting -- and buried her article on foxnews.com.
Can you find it under any particular tab I was have people asked me how to find stuff online yet it can get on get a site can get a they have a lot going on -- on the front page for the yes it excellent had to grab that.
I don't have a Motorola -- and on the front page editor -- in features section every Thursday and then that you can always find an aside I section and the military on the front -- that it's a great games very -- and at detecting threats from our space -- very people who probably -- on Twitter oh yes please do I'm trying to have got like three TD friends and trying to look.
-- look I mean -- there's your -- -- senators who are there any he's not getting -- year nationalist.
Can I mean and the super cool writer on foxnews.com so thanks very nice strangling us.
And don't forget to look -- that article printed out and share with your friends and -- -- on emails.
