Exploring our Universe with Thirty Meter Telescope

Location: 'Imiloa Astronomy Center

What is the scientific potential of the proposed Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Maunakea? Join Dr. Christophe Dumas of TMT International Observatory for a look beyond exploring our Universe with TMT.

TMT will use state-of-the-art technology, combining adaptive-optics systems with powerful imaging and spectroscopic analysis of the light emitted by astronomical bodies, to explore Northern skies at a dramatically enhanced sensitivity and spatial resolution across many wavelength regimes. This sharpened vision will shed new lights on the processes involved in the formation and evolution of the Universe, and its visible and hidden nature.

Currently the Observatory Scientist for the Thirty Meter Telescope International Observatory, Dr. Dumas will serve as Head of its future operations. Prior to this appointment, he was in charge of the scientific operations of the European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope (also known as ‘Paranal Observatory’), the largest worldwide optical observatory, based in the Atacama desert of Northern Chile. He also worked for many years at the NASA-Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, as mission scientist for various space-mission concepts such as the Terrestrial Planet Finder and Astrobiology Explorer.

‘Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawai‘i is located at 600 ‘Imiloa Place in Hilo, off Komohana and Nowelo Streets at the UH Hilo Science and Technology Park.

Special Restrictions: $8 for members, $10 for non-members
