The Square Kilometre Array Observatory: current status and science preparatory activities
Friday, November 10th, 2023, 2:00pm – Aula D (old SISSA building) & streaming

Abstract. The Square Kilometre Array (SKA,, currently under construction, will be the world’s largest radio observatory once completed. It will consist of one radio telescope operating in the 50-350 MHz frequency range (SKA-Low, Western Australia) and another one operating in the 350 MHz-15 GHz range (SKA-Mid, South Africa). I will describe the SKA’s science drivers and give an update on the current construction activities, with a focus on the Italian contributions. I will describe the Observatory’s timeline and access policy. I will finally describe the current science preparatory activities, in particular the SKA science data challenges.
