The ASKAP telescope will investigate about 600,000 galaxies, hundreds of times more colsely than current radio telescope allow. With the operational antennas, ASKAP is currently churning out about 5,2 terabyte of data per second.
When all 36 of the AKAP telescopes working, about 72 trillion bytes per second of information will process.
