Canadian Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT)
The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) adaptive optics system test cooling unit jointly developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and ARKREF arrivd in Canada in May 2021, and will be delivered to the Herzberg Astronomy and Astrophysics of the Canadian National Research Council of TMT. NRC.
With the continuous development of astronomy, telescopes with larger capabilities are required to collect the required information, and the construction of optical telescopes with larger apertures has become an inevitable requirement. However, no country can complete this task independently.The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) is one of the three largest-diameter ground-based optical telescopes under research and development in the world. It is planned to be completed in 2027 and is jointly developed by the United States, Canada, China, India and Japan, leveraging their respective technical expertise. Its design and construction will greatly advance the development of astronomy and related science and technology.
