SKA: The Square Kilometer Array

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is the world's next generation radio telescope. With a collecting area of one square kilometre, it will be about 100 times the size of the biggest existing radio telescopes.

In 2002, the Swinburne Centre for Astrophysics & Supercomputing worked closely with Dr Peter Hall and Paul Thompson of ATNF to produce the following visualisations of the Australian SKA concept, based on using arrays of Luneburg lenses located in the outback of Western Australia.
