Our telescopes

We are building the two largest radio telescope arrays in the world, located in Australia and South Africa, supported by institutions and facilities around the globe.

SKAO science goals

The SKA telescopes will transform our understanding of the Universe, tackling some of the most fundamental scientific questions of our time.

Women in STEM

Diversity and inclusion are foundational values at the SKAO. We want to break down stereotypes about working in science, technology, engineering and maths, and ensure women's contributions in these fields are celebrated.


How is the SKAO benefitting society?

Precursors and pathfinders
