A recording of a talk presented by Professor Peter Quinn, Director of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research. In this talk Professor Quinn describes the international mega-science project to build the worlds biggest radio telescope, the Square Kilometre Array. Now that Australia and Southern Africa have been chosen by the SKA Project Office in Manchester to host different parts of this enormous telescope, the project is about to enter the final stages of design and construction.
The first half of this video is a presentation followed by an in-depth question and answer session between Professor Quinn and the audience. This event was hosted by Horizon - the Planetarium at Scitech in Perth Western Australia on June 7th, 2012.
