The telescope can observe about 4,000 celestial bodies

 at one time, and can also help calculate the age of more than a million stars.

According to Zhao Yongheng, a researcher from the National Astronomical Ob

servatories of China, LAMOST’s latest spectra data is the world’s most complete astronomical data set,

providing a reference for the formation and evolution of the Milky Way as well as other galaxies.

More than 100 institutes and universities from the US, Germ

any, Belgium, Denmark and other countries and regions around the world are using this dat

a to carry out research on the evolution of the Milky Way, stellar physics and special celestial bodies.

With LAMOST, Chinese astronomers have discovered the most lithium

-rich giant star ever known, as well as more than 10,000 metal-poor star candidates, wh

ich may help shed light on the early universe and the emergence of the first stars and galaxies.
