MessageToEagle.com - The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) will be the world's largest and most sensitive radio telescope.

Located in Australia and in Southern Africa, the SKA will combine the signals from antennas in each region telescope with a collecting area equivalent to a dish with an area of about one square kilometre.

A powerful telescope like this will be able to look for signs of extraterrestrial life and find answers some of the fundamental unanswered questions of our universe.

Made up of thousands of radio wave receptors covering 4,921 square km of the Earth's surface in the Australian outback, Scientists have claimed it will provide alternative views of the universe than those seen with optical telescopes.

"It will give Astronomers insight into the formation and evolution of the first stars and galaxies after the Big Bang, the role of cosmic magnetism, the nature of gravity and possibly even life beyond," a spokesman for the SKA said.

Former UK Ministry of Defence UFO Project leader Nick Pope is very excited about the SKA that will be launched in 2016.

Pope believes that humanity's first contact will alien life-from will occur with help of signals.

"The old-fashioned idea was that there would be this landing on the White House lawn.

First contact might just happen via email, but more likely it will be through radio signals," Pope said.

"I will be controversial and give you an exact year of when I believe first confirmation of contact will be made - and that is 2024, the year in which if everything goes according to plan the Square Kilometre Array will be fully operational," Pope, who studied UFO sightings at the MoD for 21 years, said.

"If there is a civilization within 100 light years this telescope could find it. We are now beginning to have the technology whether it's the SKA or maybe other telescopes that are being developed that will allow these possibilities. We are searching all the time for a shadow earth," Pope added.
