    Looking ahead to the Square Kilometer Array

    Astronomy: Looking ahead to the Square Kilometer Array

    The overarching SKA project hopes to see an intergovernmental treaty signed in 2018, and should begin its five-year construction in 2019 or 2020. Braun says that the South African MeerKAT radio telescope, which is a precursor project that will be integrated into the SKA, is nearing completion and expects to be functioning in April 2018. Other first-class science precursor facilities located such as ASKAP and the MWA radio telescopes in Australia are already paving the way for SKA, as well as a number of smaller facilities around the world.

    The wait seems long, but for astronomy fans, itís going to be well worth it.

    Every day you see one more card
    You take it on faith, you take it to the heart

    "The first fully assembled dish for the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) radio telescope was unveiled Tuesday in Shijiazhuang, capital of north China's Hebei Province."
