CARNAR­VON: South Africa on Fri­day un­veiled a su­per ra­dio tele­scope, a first phase of what will be the world’s largest tele­scope in a project to try to un­ravel the secrets of the uni­verse.

The 64-dish MEERKAT tele­scope in the remote and arid Ka­roo re­gion of South Africa will be in­te­grated into a multi-na­tion Square Kilo­me­tre Ar­ray (SKA). When fully op­er­a­tional, the SKA tele­scope will be 50 times more pow­er­ful than any other tele­scope in the world. PAGE
