Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa is today embarking on a visit to the Square Kilometre Array site in the Northern Cape.

This visit will showcase the MeerKAT as the world’s biggest and most sensitive radio telescopes.

 The SKA will be able to probe the edges of the universe and be able to answer key questions about the laws of nature and physics.

 Deputy President’s Spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa says South Africa is currently building the sixty four dig MeerKAT.

Upon completion in twenty seventeen the MeerKAT will be the largest radio telescope in the world and most sensitive radio scope of its kind.

During his visit, Deputy President Ramaphosa will also have an opportunity to
interact with members of the community from surrounding areas of the SKA
side Mamoepa added.
