SKA reverses brain drain in South Africa
June 13, 2014 Editor 0
The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) has reversed the brain drain in the sector by bringing to South Africa young scientists and engineers who are highly skilled and innovative, said SKA South Africa project director Dr Bernie Fanaroff this week. “The SKA project has raised the profile of astronomy and technology in the way that only a megaproject can do. Our young people have shown that they can perform as well, or better than, anyone in the world on both science and technology,” Fanaroff told Engineering News Online.
