The Square Kilometre Array

In recent days we’ve brought you animated videos of Australia’s new radio telescope system, ASKAP, taking shape in the Western Australian desert.

Although ASKAP will be a fully-fledged radio telescope system in its own right — and one of the best in the world — it is also a “pathfinder” facility being built in the hope that Australia will win the rights to host the much larger Square Kilometre Array (SKA), which will be the world’s largest radio telescope system.

The video above, produced by the Swinburne Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing, showcases the SKA and the amazing astronomical research it will perform.
