TMT is a $1.4B multinational R&D Project to develop the world’s highest attitude Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) where the Us Government has partnered with India, China, Japan, and Canada. When completed, the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) will enable astronomers to study objects in our own solar system and stars throughout our Milky Way and its neighboring galaxies, and forming galaxies at the very edge of the observable Universe, near the beginning of time. Consisting of 492 segmented mirrors with nine times the power of the Keck telescope, the TMT would enable astronomers to conduct research which is unfeasible with current instruments. The TMT is designed for near-ultraviolet to mid-infrared (0.31 to 28 μm wavelengths) observations, featuring adaptive optics to assist in correcting image blur.
