Audio Universe: Tour of the Solar System
December 9th, 2021 Associate Project Manager Blog

One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about working on TMT has been the opportunity to do educational outreach at local schools. For example, over the past few weeks I’ve been teaching astrobiology at an elementary school. So, I’m always on the lookout for interesting and novel education materials to help convey the excitement of astronomy to the next generation.

TMT Segment Support Assemblies from India
October 13th, 2021 Associate Project Manager Blog

Our colleagues in India are making the mechanical supports for the segments of the primary mirror. What are the key requirements of each segment support assembly (SSA)?

In a previous set of blog entries, we discussed the principle of adaptive optics, which TMT will use to remove the effects of turbulence in the Earth's atmosphere. TMT's first light adaptive optics includes the Narrow Field Infra-Red Adaptive Optics System (NFIRAOS), which is being designed and built by our Canadian colleagues at the Herzberg Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Centre, in Victoria.
