The Square Kilometer Array: The World's Largest Radio Telescope-
The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project is an international effort to build the world’s largest radio telescope, with eventually over a square kilometre (one million square metres) of collecting area. The scale of the SKA represents a huge leap forward in both engineering and research & development towards building and delivering a unique instrument, with the detailed design and preparation now well under way. As one of the largest scientific endeavours in history, the SKA will bring together a wealth of the world’s finest scientists, engineers and policy makers to bring the project to fruition.
Please join Tony Darnell and Christian Ready as they discuss this exciting ground-based professional observatory with Dr. Jeff Wagg and Daniel Hayden, both members of the SKA Consortium.
