  Speaker: Prof. Shude Mao (NAOC) 

    Title: The Thirty Meter Telescope: A golden opportunity for China 

    Time: 3:00PM, May 5 (Monday) 

    Location: 3rd floor, middle conference room 

    Abstract: 

    The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project is a world-leading, next-generation extremely large optical/IR telescope that will provide collecting area nine times larger than KECK and resolution ten times sharper than the Hubble Space Telescope. It will revolutionise our understanding of the universe for many decades to come. China is a full collaborative partner in TMT. I will highlight a few scientific areas that TMT can make key contributions, and then review the current status of TMT in terms of partner formation, China's technical contributions and challenges we face in the short-term. Finally I will address a few FAQs and outline what you, particularly the young generation, can do for TMT-China.
