The new telescope will test Einstein's General Theory of Relativity to the limit - and perhaps prove it wrong. It is certain to add to the long list of fundamental discoveries already made by radio astronomers including quasars, pulsars and the radiation left over from the Big Bang.

Plus all the other discoveries they will make will certainly be well worth the time, effort and money.
