World's Biggest telescope

Home » Newsroom » World's Biggest telescope

The headquarters of the world's biggest telescope will be at The University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank, it has been announced.

The Cheshire facility currently houses the headquarters of the multinational Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project for its pre-construction phase. These premises will now be expanded to support the growing project. Construction of the telescope, to be located in South Africa and Australia, will begin in 2018 and the SKA is planned to be operational for at least 50 years.
The University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank site will host the SKA headquarters backed by the UK government through the Science and Technology Facilities Council, The University of Manchester and Cheshire East Council.
