In short

Africa is bidding to host the world’s largest Telescope, that would make the continent a major hub for astronomy in the world.

The Minister of Environment Science and Technology of Ghana, Ms Sherry Ayittey, said on Tuesday (March 8, 2011) that, if Africa won the bid to be announced in the middle of 2012, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Project, which would be one of the largest scientific research facilities in the world, would consolidate Africa as a major hub for astronomy.
