Installation was completed on the world's largest radio telescope on Sunday morning as the last of4,450 panels was fitted into the center of the big dish. Work on the 1.2-billion-yuan (180 million U.S. dollars) FAST project began in 2011. While many cheer for the final touches of world's largest radio telescope,  a few argue against the extravagence over such a uselss thing which has nothing to do with people's livelihood.  It is more worthwhile, they think, to offer free lunch for the impoverished students . Indeed, since 2006, the Chinese government's scientific and technological input ranks the 2nd in the world, following the US, but its output has lagged far behind that of the developed countries. Then should the government invest heavily on science or should it spend more on improving people's lives?

Do you contemplate they should have build a Radius 250 Mtr. giant Wok?
It looks pretty close to it.
Twentyfive percent out of nothing is still nothing!

the project is more important than helping the poor.
It is to explore the universe, not a useless thing.

It's not good to help the poor by offering money.
It's good to teach the poor how to fish, not offering fish.
