Abstract

The Square Kilometre Array will be the world’s largest radio telescope when it is built in the early years of the next decade.  It is designed to allow observation over a range of size and distance scales and different frequencies.  This should enable the study of many topics of current interest, from the origins of galaxies and the history of the distribution of hydrogen in the early universe, through massive surveys of pulsars, to the development of planetary systems around protostars.  We will look at the elements which will make up the telescope, how it is being developed, and will see how it will contribute to our understanding, and how this fits with a Christian worldview.
