SKA decision will expand UCT's astronomy reach

04 June 2012

UCT scholars enthusiastically welcomed the decision by the SKA Site Advisory Committee and its associates to assign a portion of the international Square Kilometre Array (SKA) of radio telescopes to South Africa.

The majority of SKA dishes in Phase 1 of the €1.5 billion project will be built in South Africa in combination with MeerKAT, aka the Karoo Array Telescope, the South African array currently under construction in the Karoo region.

Further SKA dishes will be added to the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder.
