The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is the next generation radio telescope for the 21st Century. It will be two orders of magnitude more sensitive and have the ability to survey the sky up to one million times faster than any existing instrument. In this talk I will describe some of the core scientific challenges we will address including the first galaxies and their evolution, the end of the dark ages, the origin of cosmic magnetism and testing gravity using natural clocks. I will also discuss our design for the SKA and discuss the technical challenges we have overcome and those that still remain in order to deliver this transformational instrument.
