Thirty Meter Telescope: The Next Generation of Ground Based Optical/Infrared Observatory

Warren Skidmore, Thirty Meter Telescope

22 Aug 2013 - 15:30

I will discuss the scientific capabilities that the Thirty Meter Telescope will provide and some of the areas of study that will benefit from the TMT's capabilities. I'll describe how the telescope design was developed to support a broad range of observing capabilities and how the observatory is being engineered. Finally I'll describe the project organization and, importantly, the avenues through which individuals and institutes can actively participate in the project.
