Hosted by Dr. Jacinta Delhaize & Dr. Daniel Cunnama.

Jacinta continues her visit to Australia, this week chatting with Dr. Jeff Wagg about the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) and Ahmed Elagali about his work on superclusters, neutral hydrogen and ring galaxies.

Jeff is a project scientist for the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) science team and he updates us on the current status of the SKA, as an organisation, but also from a construction point of view. Incredibly exciting to see this massive project taking shape!

Ahmed is a PhD student from Sudan working at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) and he talks to us about superclusters and his role in the discovery of the Vela Supercluster. Ahmed also explains some of his recent work on neutral hydrogen and ring galaxies.
