SKA: THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL RADIOTELESCOPE
Designed to scan the far reaches of the universe, SKA comprises two telescopes. Ska-mid will scan the mid-range frequencies arriving from half way across the universe. A traditional dish design, Ska-mid will be based in South Africa. Ska-low will detect the low frequencies broadcasting from the very edge of the universe. This unusual-looking telescope, know as an ‘aperture array’, will be built in West Australia.
