Thirty Meter Telescope

Posted by Marcus Zillman

Thirty Meter Telescope

Construction has finally started on the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), a project that has been in planning and fundraising phases for several years. Upon completion, the sky-peering instrument will be “the most advanced and powerful optical telescope on Earth.” There is much to glean about the project from this website. Readers may like to read the History of the TMT project or browse Outreach & Education, both found within the About TMT section. The News Center is another interesting component of the site and features Press Releases, Feature Stories, the TMT Segments Newsletter, and Podcasts. Readers looking for detailed information about The Telescope, Site Information, and Instruments will enjoy the Observatory section, while Multimedia offers some beautiful animations of the telescope-to-be, as well as photographs, and video interviews with scientists who are looking forward to using the TMT to unlock the secrets of the universe. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™. From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout 1994-2015.
