Although known for its gorgeous beaches and aloha lifestyle, the state of Hawaii is also home to a host of impressive and successful student robotics programs. The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) Project is sponsoring several of these robotics clubs with the goal of encouraging fun and learning today that can translate into careers in science and technology tomorrow.
A highly successful internship program run by the Akamai Workforce Initiative (AWI) is starting another summer session this week, thanks in part to funding from the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) Project.
The first stars and tiny galaxies formed about 150-300 million years after the Big Bang, 13.7 billion years ago. They were the seeds that led to today’s myriad galaxies, including our own Milky Way. But the details of when and how they developed are still unclear.
The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) will enable astronomers to explore the universe in unprecedented clarity when it achieves “first light” later this decade. The public, however, will get an exciting preview of what TMT will observe as part of the two-day expo for the USA Science and Engineering Festival, October 23 and 24 in Washington, D.C.
About a hundred experts in astronomy, information technology, and applied computer science have gathered at Caltech to define a new field at the intersection of these disciplines. The emerging field of astroinformatics reflects how science is changing in the 21st century, powered by the information-technology revolution.
Quest for the Best Window on the Universe: Location may be important in real estate, but it’s essential for astronomy, especially when the home you’re building is for the world’s most advanced and powerful telescope, the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). But how do you find the best and what makes one site better than another?
The search for Earth-like planets, the nature and distribution of dark matter, and the quest to image the first stars and galaxies are just some of the science challenges that will be addressed by the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT).
The Thirty Meter Telescope project (TMT) presented a $31,000 grant to Waiakea High School to support the school’s acclaimed Hawaii Project for Robotics Education. TMT representative Sandra Dawson presented the check to Waiakea teacher Dale Olive at a ceremony on Monday, April 6.
