Caption: Square Kilometre Array telescope. Artist's concept of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope against a radio image of the night sky. The large central object (orange) is a radio galaxy and the two smaller objects (upper right and lower centre) are pulsars. The SKA will comprise thousands of smaller dishes with a combined collecting area of one square kilometre. When built, it will be 100 times the size of the biggest existing radio telescope. The final SKA design will be constructed in 2020 in either Australia or South Africa.
