Portugal involved in pioneering telescope project to “help discover habitable planets”

Portugal is investing €30 million up to 2030 in an international project involving seven countries (including Australia and China) to construct two of the world’s “biggest most complex networks of telescopes” . The SKA Observatory (SKA standing for Square Kilometer Array) is focused on “unlocking some of the most fascinating secrets of the Universe”. The idea is that it will “help give answers to habitable planets, black holes and dark matter”.
