Location of radio telescope: Guizhou, China
New source:

As I said in a post last year while they were still working on it, this radio telescope is going to be used by China to communicate with aliens and create trade agreements. Lucky for China, they also have paying customer billionaire who will finance a lot of the searching. Its a win win situation, and hopefully they succeed and tell the public about it. Can you see the future history books teaching how China found aliens first and contacted them first publicly? That would be a sign of a true world power.

New states: 
The Breakthrough Initiatives to search for extraterrestrial life are split into three main projects: Breakthrough Listen, Breakthrough Starshot, and Breakthrough Message. Starshot is an attempt to send a nanoprobe to Alpha Centauri, the closest star to us, using photonic propulsion. Message is a competition with $1,000,000 in prize money available to science teams who come up with the best platform to send a digital message out to any intelligent aliens who might be listening. And Listen, the flagship of the Breakthrough Initiatives, uses ground-based radio telescopes to search for any signals given off by an alien civilization.

The Breakthrough Initiatives just announced that they will join forces with China’s space program to use the recently-completed Five-Hundred-Meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST), the largest single-dish telescope in the world. The massive radio telescope in the southwestern province of Guizhou should be able to detect fainter signals than ever before.

A team of researchers at FAST will share data and information with researchers at the Green Bank Telescope in the U.S. and the Parkes Observatory in Australia to refine search methods and scour the sky for any signs of intelligent life.
