HOW MANY COUNTRIES ARE INVOLVED IN THE MAKING OF THE SKA?
Many different countries are working together to build - and pay for - the SKA. At least 13 countries and close to 100 organisations are already involved, and more are joining the project.
WHAT WILL IT BE USED FOR?
Astronomers will be using the SKA to find out how the stars and galaxies are formed. The SKA will also help in how the stars and galaxies evolved overtime.
WHERE WILL IT BE BUILT?
WHAT IS SKA?
SKA stands for The Square Kilometer Array (SKA). The SKA project is based in the United Kingdom. It is a global science and Engineering , led by the international SKA Organisation.
Thousands of SKA dishes will be built in south Africa. Another part of the telescope will be built in western Australia.
The SKA is so important because it will be at lease 50 times more powerful and will be 10,000 times more faster then recent radio telescope.
HOW WILL THE SKA WORK?
The radio telescope collects radio waves form space. Then the radio signals go through a computer which can understand the signals to then to makes images from the universe.
