Maser science with the Square Kilometre Array

  • Anna Bonaldi (a1)


The Square Kilometre Array (SKA), reaching a collecting area of one square kilometre, will be the world’s largest radio telescope. Even in its first stage of deployment (SKA1, whose construction will be completed in 2026) it will enable transformational science on a very broad range of scientific objectives. Amongst them, there is the investigation of several Galactic and extra-galactic Masers. In this paper I will present the status of the SKA project and I will describe the capabilities of the SKA, with a focus on those that are more relevant for Maser science.
