Wilmslow Scibar: The SKA - the world's largest telescope

  • The Old Dancer 16 Grove Street Wilmslow, England, SK9 1DR United Kingdom (map)

The talk will be by Althea & Peter Wilkinson and will focus on the Square Kilometre Array, the next generation radio telescope, designed by a worldwide group of engineers and scientists, and as the headquarters is being built at Jodrell Bank, this is something which has considerable local interest. The talk will be about what the project is, a bit about what astronomy the telescope will enable us to do and how the design and construction process is progressing.
