Data flowing from the antennas to the on-site signal processor will be transferred 100,000 times faster than the projected global average broadband speed for '2022'.

The SKA will use enough optical fibre to wrap twice around the Earth!

The computing power required for each of the 2 SKA supercomputers will match that of the best supercomputers in the world in 2019.

Every year, the volume of data stored by the SKA would fill over a million 500GB laptops.

The SKA will be so sensitive that it will be able to detect an airport radar on a planet tens of light years away.
