Welcome to our inaugural Telescope Talk - Professsional Version Hangout! Today we learn about the Square Kilometer array being built in South Africa and Western Australia

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.
