Picture the Universe: CSCS and PASC project supports future SKA
— The Square Kilometre Array Observatory is scheduled for completion by 2030. Once operational, it will generate 600 petabytes of astronomical data per year. Scientists in Switzerland are working diligently to develop part of the supercomputing infrastructure and software that will process this enormous amount of data efficiently. CSCS is lending its expertise from many years of experience in handling large amounts of data, while a project financed by the PASC initiative and led by EPFL researchers is increasing the efficiency of the data processing software.
