The SKA Logo

The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) will be the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope when it is completed.

Ten countries across these two continents will share the location of this mind-boggling project.

The Tablet That Turns Itself Lumpy (VIDEO)

When you can’t feel individual keys on a touchscreen device it can be hard to type at speed.

That is why Tactus, a company based in California, has developed technology which can turn a typical flat tablet screen into a real keyboard with bumpy buttons.
