The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) − The radio telescope for the next generation
SummaryThe Square Kilometre Array will be the most ambitious radio telescope ever planned. The scientific capabilities and its technological challenges will open up new windows of discovery space and will place the SKA as one of the cornerstones in the exploration of the Universe’s most fundamental questions. The upcoming year 2014 will be the most influential one in the SKA design process. Employees from the German SKA working group and the MPS are involved in various design studies in order to create the blueprint of this super science machine of the next 50 years.
