It hasn't been decided where to build it yet though.

maybe fit space telescopes, space probes with radio telescopes, the probe orbiting Mercury now, maybe that probe if fited with radio telescope it could listen for non natural radio signals.

you really didn't read the article or pay attention to whats been said about space based radio telescopes in other threads.

A reminder. Radio telescopes are not hindered in their observations like visual telescopes are. There is no need to base anything on the moon or space probes. having a relatively small dish on a probe is pointless when much better data is gathered right here at home without the expense and trouble of sending a probe out which clearly isn't going to get the same quality of signal.

Its good news for the UK, and for Jodrell Bank. It will be a very exciting project!

John.
