Thirty Meter Telescope
(extremely large telescope planned for Hawaii)
The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) is
a 30-meter adaptive optics, segmented-mirror-reflecting
extremely large telescope plan, intended for
Mauna Kea, Hawaii, for first light in 2027.
Site construction was delayed for some time,
and relocating the plan to Canary Islands was considered, but
as of 2018, plans are proceeding to built it at the
Mauna Kea Observatories, with parts construction proceeding.
