TIME TO GET TO KNOW SKA AFRICA
The time for the final decision on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is getting nearer. The SKA is a radio telescope in development which will be able to survey the sky more than ten thousand times faster than ever before. It will continue radio astronomy's tradition of providing the highest resolution images in all astronomy.
This is an international €1.5 billion project that has to be in the Southern Hemisphere. Following a long process the choice is now between South Africa and Australia/New Zealand.
