Australia and New Zealand SKA project (anzSKA)

The Square Kilometre Array is a new generation radio telescope that has a discovery potential 10,000 times greater 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. Australia and New Zealand have been shortlisted by the international science community as one of two potential locations for the SKA.
