Researchers in Australia unveiled the world's fastest radio telescope friday. Composed of 36 dishes, the telescope is located a remote desert area of Western Australia.

Over the next few decades, the radio telescope will consist of 3000 dishes and antennas installed across the southern hemisphere. Only in its early stages of operation, scientists are already predicting big finds such as over 700,000 super galaxies with signals that were sent before the Earth existed.
