"Today SKA Organisation is releasing the new official SKA science book, Advancing Astrophysics with the Square Kilometre Array. The book contains the proceedings from the SKA science conference held in Giardini Naxos, Sicily last year. The two-volume book contains 135 chapters written by 1,213 contributors from 31 nationalities, adding up to some 2000 pages covering many areas of astrophysics, from cosmology to the search for life in the Universe. "The publication of the new SKA science book is the culmination of more than a year's work by the SKA science team and the scientific community at large" said Dr. Robert Braun, the SKA Science Director. "It's also a great testimony to the growing interest and scope of the SKA since the publication of the last book 10 years ago." The last SKA science book, Science with the Square Kilometre Array, was published in 2004."
