ASTRONOMY INCURSION

17th August 2010

Al-Hidayah Islamic school invited presenters from the Faculty of Life and Physical Sciences from the University of Western Australia for Science Week.

The students learnt about the installation of the biggest telescope in the world called the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). Australia and New Zealand have been short listed as the loction of the SKA. The SKA will be a revolutionary radio telescope made of thousands of receptors linked together across an area the size of a continent. It will be vastly more sensitive than the best present-day instruments and give astronomers remarkable insights into the formation of the early Universe.

There were many hands on activities for the students to enjoy. Two telescopes were setup to view the sun in a safe way. Students could see the different surfaces on the sun and its internal structures.

The students asked many questions relating to the subject and the responses were very positive. Alhamdulillah.
