The UK has given a major boost to the international Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope programme by announcing funding of £100-million (€120-million, almost R1.8-billion) for Phase 1 of the instrument. As the construction cost of Phase 1 has been capped at €650-million, the British grant amounts to almost 18.5% of the total required to build the first phase of the SKA, which will be co-hosted by South Africa and Australia.
