A 64-dish radio telescope called MeerKAT has been fired up in Carnarvon, South Africa. In the future, MeerKAT will be part of a larger instrument called Square Kilometer Array (SKA), a massive multi-radio telescope project expected to span about one square kilometer, which is what the SKA name refers to. The project won’t be fully operational until the end of … Continue reading
