Thirty Meter Telescope - An International Collaboration

From an overview article for "Inquiries of Heaven" (Issue No. 8 ) - the daily newspaper for the IAU 28th General Assembly in Beijing, China:

The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) represents the next generation of ground-based astronomical observatories. Driven by frontier science themes, TMT offers 10 times the light-gathering power of the largest existing ground-based optical/near-IR facilities and will produce images 10 times more detailed than the Hubble Space Telescope. With this tremendous increase in power, TMT will deliver as yet unforeseen, groundbreaking discoveries about the Universe. In short, TMT will herald a new generation of telescopes and will serve its partner communities as a flagship research facility.

Peculiar article, just what I was looking for.


Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and all. But think about if you added some great visuals or videos to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
Superb blog!


Does your website have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating it but, I'd like to shoot
you an e-mail. I've got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.


When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Many thanks!
