Jimi Green Colloquium: The Road to SKA Phase 1: A science team perspective
The SKA organisation has recently established a dedicated science team, tasked with facilitating maximum science productivity with the forthcoming revolutionary telescope. Here I will describe an overview of the SKA facility, the project timeline, the role and function of the science group and the avenues for engaging with the project. I will describe the science motivating the design and the cutting edge capabilities of the first phase of the SKA, which will provide unique scientific insights. The SKA design is being finalised over the coming months, with the expectation that early science operations will begin in 2020.
