SKA near Carnarvon, Australia

SKA NEAR CARNARVON, AUSTRALIA-JULY 26, 2012: The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) mega-telescope will be the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope and will enable astronomers to glimpse the formation and evolution of the first stars and galaxies after the Big Bang. This image features the future site of the SKA telescope, a seven dish precursor array MeerKat KAT-7. The telescope will help scientists investigate the nature of gravity and possibly discover life beyond Earth because of its ability to detect organic molecules. (Photo DigitalGlobe via Getty Images)
