New telescope may link us to alien life
July 7, 2011
It will revolutionise our understanding of the universe and might help us make contact with alien life.
The square kilometre array is one of the most ambitious science projects ever conceived and when completed will be the world's most powerful radio telescope, thousands of times more capable than anything currently available.
It could explain the origin of dark matter, which makes up about 90 per cent of the universe and reveal how galaxies and stars were formed.
But what has scientists most excited is its potential to reveal things not yet dreamed of.
