Square Kilometre Array

The Square Kilometre Array is a scientific project to build a giant collection of radio telescopes spanning several southern hemisphere continents. Originally proposals for two sites - one mainly in South Africa and one mainly in Australia were competing for funding, but in mid 2012 it was decided that the array would be hosted across both sites.

Construction of the massive project will begin in 2016 and the project will be completed in 2024.

The track features a description of the project by a journalist for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
