Infrastructure work at the site of the world’s largest radio telescope – the Square Kilometer Array – is set to start in 2022, eventually allowing us to be able to answer some of the most fundamental questions about the universe – such as how galaxies evolve and whether there is life out there. News24 reports that South Africa’s MeerKAT radio telescope, with its 64 dishes, already located outside Carnavon will be integrated into SKA Phase 1 while outstations will also be located in other parts in South Africa and eight partner African countries, including Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia and Zambia. The other part of the telescope will be built in Western Australia.
