The square kilometer array

This will be one of the most important leaps in astronomy to date. Sadly the USA was not even a serious contender for hosting this project, as we continue to fall behind in high technology and science. It is worth mentioning that a similar, highly ambitious project was planned here called "Cyclops" way back in 1971. It goes without saying that funding never arrived.
