Press Releases

Press Releases are high-level information describing important scientific, technical and organisation developments and achievements, as well as important milestones reached by the SKA Work Packages Consortia. Press Releases are generally distributed via the AAS mailing list, AlphaGalileo and EurekAlert! as well as to the journalists and broadcasters part of our own SKA Mailing List. If you would like to subscribe to this mailing list, send an email to William Garnier, SKA Director of Communications, Outreach & Education, detailing who you are, the media you are representing and providing your contact details (full name, phone numbers, email address).


Announcements feature stories or events which are of interest to the SKA community. This includes announcing dates and locations of upcoming events, presenting new SKA eNews, reporting on interesting developments within the SKA Work Packages Consortia which are not covered in Press Releases.

Media visits

The SKA Project welcomes journalists and broadcasters to its sites. Requests must be addressed directly to the SKA Director of Communications, Outreach & Education.
