Thirty Meter Telescope - TMT

    Description

    Una vez construido, el Telescopio de Treinta Metros (Thirty Meter Telescope, TMT) será el telescopio terrestre más avanzado y potente de la historia, así como el telescopio óptico infrarrojo más grande del hemisferio norte que existirá en ese momento. Se incluye entre los denominados de tipo Telescopio Extremadamente Grande por el diámetro de su espejo.

    El TMT integrará las últimas innovaciones en control de precisión, diseño de espejos segmentados y óptica adaptativa (AO). El TMT será tres veces más amplio y con nueve veces más área que el telescopio de luz visible más grande del mundo.

    El TMT poseerá una sensibilidad diez veces superior a la de los observatorios ópticos/infrarrojos de más capacidad ya existentes  y con el sistema de óptica adaptativa que corrige la distorsión de la imagen causada por la atmósfera, podrá proporcionar imágenes doce veces más nítidas que el Telescopio Espacial Hubble.

    • The National Academy of Science of the United States presented, yesterday afternoon, its report Pathways to Discovery in Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 2020s, a decadal study which identifies priorities for research and makes recommendations for future investment in scientific projects for the next ten years. Among its conclusions the report specifies the Programme of Extremely Large Telescopes (ELT) as a priority for ground-based astronomy, and stresses the need to invest in at least one of the projects proposed for this type of telescopes, among them the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT)

    • The Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) has received and will appeal the sentence, which is not firm, related to the cancelling of the concession for the land which should house the Thirty Metre Telescope (TMT) in La Palma. In 2019 the Cabildo of La Palma, following approval by a full session of the Town Council of Puntagorda, and a detailed environmental study, conceded to the IAC the land on which the TMT could be built. This concession was made conditional on the decision within a few years, which have not yet expired, that the International TMT Observatory would decide to build it
