SKADS Science Case

The idea for SKA sprang from the desire to detect faint emission from hydrogen gas in structures forming soon after the Big Bang, and in the galaxies which developed from these structures. Hydrogen makes up most of the Universe but detecting it in distant galaxies requires super-sensitive equipment. SKA working groups agreed on a set of five Key Science Projects, against which any technical designs need to be tested.
