In China, SETI research is just starting to gain popularity.

Yet Zhang, a professor of cosmology at Beijing Normal University, is already convinced his country could be the first to detect a signal from another world.

“We will probably find it first,” Zhang tells Sixth Tone in his cramped Beijing office.  “They (the West) have more experience, but … our telescope can detect things theirs can’t.”

China’s trump card is the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) — a giant observatory built on a mountaintop in the southwestern Guizhou province in 2016.

The signal the Chinese will receive is not a WOW signal, but, "Say, how fast can you send us food from your takeaway?"
