Join CSIRO Research Astronomer, Dr Lisa Harvey Smith as she discussed the Square Kilometre Array Program. The SKA is the most advanced radio telescope in the world, comprising more than 10,000 antennas linked together and spanning hundreds of kilometres. It will be built in Australasia and Southern Africa and will enable us to probe the edges of our Universe in search for answers to fundamental questions in physics and astronomy.
