  • After the installation of the eight-meter Subaru Telescope at the summit of Mauna Kea, Hawaii, the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) is promoting the construction of a 30-meter, next-generation, extremely large telescope (TMT) as part of an international scientific cooperation project. Mr. Iye will introduce the audience to the structure and performance of the ultimate camera, the TMT, which comes with adaptive optics technology that cancels out the blurring of images due to atmospheric turbulence, by real-time control. By showing some images, he will also explain in an easy-to-understand manner what astronomy tries to unravel through the images of the universe depicted by the TMT.
