It used to take weeks to find any of these mysterious signals from deep in space but when the new telescope started looking it found one within days. Then another.
The Square Kilometre Array, or SKA, is a next-generation radio telescope that will be vastly more sensitive than the best present-day instruments. It will give astronomers remarkable insights into the formation of the early Universe, including the emergence of the first stars, galaxies and other structures. We caught up with research engineer Mia Baquiran to find out more about this amazing new instrument and her role in getting it off the ground and into the skies.
The Netherlands have issued a new stamp series showcasing the unique 400 year relationship between the Netherlands and Australia – and we’ve made the cut!
Find out how our Australian researchers are developing a super-stable atomic clock to keep the Square Kilometre Array in sync.
