George Flanagan, a nuclear engineer at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, didn’t get to relax much between 1987 and 1990.
For nearly three decades, scientists and engineers across the globe have worked on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), a project focused on designing and building the world’s largest radio telescope. Although the SKA will collect enormous amounts of precise astronomical data in record time, scientific breakthroughs will only be possible with systems able to efficiently process that data.
