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.

This is really interesting from the link.

This telescope generates the same amount of data in a day as the entire planet does in a year," Professor Quinn said.

Much of that data will be stored in facilities in Perth but storage and processing centres will also be established in a range of other countries.

"So it's presenting challenges to the IT industry which are beyond the scope of what this whole planet can provide," he said.

"The amount of data this telescope produces, the amount of information it has to process, is going to drive the IT industry for the next that 10 to 15 years."
