The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) is the largest radio telescope being developed in South Africa/Australia and planned to be operational by 2024. SKA will consist of millions of coherently connected antennas spread over an area of about 3000 km in extent with a total collecting area of approximately one square km. SKA will collect and decipher a deluge of radio signals from deep outer space to help us better understand the evolution of the universe and the nature of the matter. In this paper we provide an introduction to the SKA science project, its basic objectives, the engineering challenges it entails and why SKA is being touted as an ultimate big data challenge.
