China Builds World’s Biggest Fixed Spectrometer Telescope “LAMOST” – Gizmo Watch

China Builds World’s Biggest Fixed Spectrometer Telescope “LAMOST” – Gizmo Watch: “National Astronomical Observatories from Chinese Academy of Sciences has completed their long awaited project “The Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope or LAMOST”. Inspired by previous telescope Sloan Digital Sky Survey, it was build at a cost of $34.40 million. A diameter of 50 meters, with a total height over 58 meters, that is equivalent of two-story building of large-scale astronomical observation equipment, and with a gross weight over 700 tons, LAMOST is world’s biggest fixed spectrometer telescope. King of the spectrum is located 170 kilometers north-east of Beijing, the Chinese capital. Acording to Professor Donald York:
“LAMOST has 4,000 fibers at a shot, 5.5 times that of SDSS and a bigger advantage over anything else””
