Radio astronomers are keen to build the next big radio telescope, one that will probe deep into the universe, map the material between stars and galaxies, and hunt for emissions from new stars and planetary systems. The new telescope, called the Square Kilometer Array, will consist of thousands of antennae combined to collect radio waves. But where will this large facility be located? There are two contenders, an African consortium led by South Africa, and a team from Australia and New Zealand. The decision, to be made in 2012, may extend beyond cut-and-dried science and technology issues.
