Big Court Win For The Thirty Meter Telescope

Embattled Thirty Meter Telescope scores big win in Hawaii's highest court, Nature

"Hawaii's supreme court has ruled in favour of building the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) atop the mountain Mauna Kea. The decision removes the last legal hurdle preventing the US$1.4-billion project from resuming construction on Hawaii's Big Island. "It is a tremendously important and significant decision that provides secure legal grounds to restart construction of this transformative facility," says Michael Balogh, an astronomer at the University of Waterloo in Canada who chairs an advisory committee that represents Canadian astronomers' interests in the TMT."
