Supporting the world’s largest science project

September 15, 2021

The SKA [Square Kilometre Array] radio telescope seeks to answer many of humankind’s current questions about the universe, and even more that we don’t yet know to ask. As one of the world’s biggest science projects, the SKA will be 50 times more sensitive, and able to survey the sky 10 000 times faster, than the best radio telescopes we have today. Co-located in South Africa and Australia the SKA will be made up of thousands of radio telescopes in three unique configurations to enable astronomers to monitor the sky in unprecedented detail. For TENET, working in collaboration with the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research’s (CSIR) South African National Research Network (SANReN) project, the SKA poses a unique challenge: how to get high-speed bandwidth, to support the world’s biggest science project to date, into one of the most remote regions in South Africa … Read More
