Thirty-Meter Telescope

Hawaiian telescope will surpass the Hubble — Wired reports that the Thirty-Meter Telescope has chosen a site in Hawaii over one in Chile to build a $300 million, biggest-ever telescope. TMT, as it’s called, will be able to see planets orbiting nearby stars. It’s “the first of the next generation of extremely large telescopes,” according to one of the project’s board members.
