256 down, 130,816 to go!
The SKA-Low telescope design contains 512 stations, each of which is made up of 256 antennas, for a total of 131,072 antennas. The first SKA-Low antenna was installed early last month, and the first station completed a couple of weeks later. With 256 antennas in place, that just leaves 130,816 to go! Crates of antenna parts have been delivered, awaiting assembly and installation. (Image credit: Brett Hiscock)
