TMT NOW LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVE SITES
Civil Beat - July 8, 2016
Following protests and a permit revocation, the Thirty Meter Telescope board is considering other places to build the project instead of the top of Mauna Kea, Physics World reported Friday.
“Hawaii is still an option but we are very actively looking at alternatives,” Fiona Harrison, Caltech physicist and member of TMT International Observatory’s governing board, told the publication.
“We’ll be culling down [the list of sites] to a few options over the summer.”
