boas

Bill Boas from Cray presented this talk at the Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference. “The SKA Telescope project entered its pre-construction design and engineering planning phase on December 1, 2013. Once fully constructed a decade from now, there will be 2500 dish antennae in South Africa and 100s of thousands of di-pole antennae in Western Australia, combining to create the world’s largest radio telescope and requiring the most data ever captured, processed, and archived that man has ever conceived.”
