Abstract:The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be sensitive enough to discover all of the pulsars in the Milky Way that are beamed towards Earth. Already in the initial deployment, SKA Phase 1, it will make significant advances in pulsar science. In these proceedings I briefly overview what the SKA is, and describe its pulsar search and timing capabilities.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
