Posted by in category: space

Two huge telescopes will provide the deepest and widest view of the cosmos to date.

Construction of the world’s biggest radio astronomy facility, the SKA Observatory, begins today. The observatory is a global project 30 years in the making.

Astronomers like me will use the telescopes to trace hydrogen over cosmic time and make precise measurements of gravity in extreme environments.


With two huge two telescopes, one in Australia and the other in South Africa, the project will see further into the history of the Universe than ever before.
