Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) will be the world’s most advanced and capable ground-based optical, near-infrared, and mid-infrared observatory.

The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Hawaii's Big Island is slated to be one of the world's largest, most powerful telescopes.

The 8.4-meter LSST will survey the entire visible sky deeply in multiple colors every week with its three-billion pixel digital camera, probing the mysteries of Dark Matter and Dark Energy.

At a traditional stone-laying ceremony outside La Serena, Chile on April construction officially began of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope . This ambitious international astrophysics project is slated to start scanning the heavens in

Life and death are all about moving energy around - from one form to another.

13.8 billion years ago the Universe was initially significantly smaller than even a pore on your skin. With the Big Bang, the fabric of space itself began expanding like the surface of an inflating balloon.

NASA, ESA Telescopes Find Evidence for Asteroid Belt Around Vega    http://www.astrowatch.net/2013/01/nasa-esa-telescopes-find-evidence-for.html#

Astronomers have discovered what appears to be a large asteroid belt around the star Vega, the second brightest star in northern night skies. The scientists used data from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope and the European Space Agency’s (ESA).

What are the global killers going to be? How, if at all, can we prepare for those? And can we safely make some assumptions about their possibility, without in actual fact inducing a premature panic for their probability?

The Moon Landings. Real thing or reel hoax?

A huge “alien city” has been discovered on the surface of the moon in a NASA photo, by a prominent UFO researcher — and this isn’t the first time that UFO hunters have claimed to .

Man’s apocalypse could be an ongoing state. In fact, it might even have started already, as you read this piece. Stephen Hawking is worried; Elon Musk is worried. You should be, too.

The EUROPEAN EXTREMELY LARGE TELESCOPE tackle the biggest scientific challenges of our time, including tracking down Earth-like planets around other stars in the “habitable zones” where life could exist.

The European-Extremely Large Telescope will be the largest optical and infra red telescope ever built. It will be a great tool for studying space when it is completed, also in 2024 (PLATO's proposed launch date).
