The SKA is a multi radio telescope project, designed to be built in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Once built, it will have a collecting area of roughly one square kilometre. It will operate over a wide range of frequencies, and it will be 50 times more sensitive than any existing radio telescope. It will be able to survey the sky 10,000 times faster than ever before.
