HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) – Officials with the Thirty Meter Telescope are slated to meet with the governor this week to discuss the stalled project.

The scheduled conversation comes as astronomers from around the globe are getting a first look at what the inside of the TMT will look like ― wherever it’s built.

The sneak peek is thanks to a virtual reality presentation at a large conference of astronomers in Honolulu this week.

It’ll be 18 stories high and go two stories underground, according to TMT manager of community affairs Sandra Dawson.
