SKA Science Meeting 2021
The SKA Science conference 2021, “A precursor’s view of the SKA sky”, is being held this week as a fully virtual event. The meeting includes plenary talks as well as splinter meetings organised by the SKA science working groups. In the lead up to the SKA, many new groundbreaking radio astronomy telescopes have been established in the last 15 years. These facilities, known as SKA pathfinder and precursor telescopes, are part of a global effort to design and build ever-more sensitive instruments to provide further insights into the radio sky and grow new scientific and technical communities. These telescopes are allowing astronomers to develop improved techniques and explore new phenomena. In the year that marks the establishment of the SKA Observatory, as well as the start of SKA construction activities, this meeting brings the focus to science, with the new and exciting results that are being produced by the SKA precursors and pathfinders and their implications for the SKA.
