SKA: Square Kilometre Array

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) represents the future of world radio astronomy. When completed in the second half of the next decade it will be able to scan and map the sky with a sensitivity ~100 times greater than is currently possible.

The SKA will reveal the dawn of galaxy formation, as well as many other new discoveries in all fields of astronomy. The scientific potential of such a telescope is astonishing and will certainly enable European astronomers of the 21st century to add to the long list of fundamental discoveries made by their predecessors in the previous century.
