" Thirty Meter Telescope: The Next Generation of Ground Based Optical/Infrared Observatory "

Warren Skidmore

(Thirty Meter Telescope Observatory Corp.)

I will discuss some of the observational capabilities that the Thirty Meter Telescope will provide and some of the areas of study that will benefit from the TMT's capabilities. I'll describe how the telescope design was developed to support a broad range of observing capabilities, how the observatory is being engineered and the plans for operations. Finally I'll describe the avenues through which astronomers can actively participate in the project.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
