Abstract

India is one of the partners building the world’s second largest telescope, which is expected to see the first light sometime in 2025. As an in-kind contribution, India need to provide several critical subsystems, including the whole telescope and observatory control software for the TMT project. In my talk I will briefly present the progress made toward Indian contribution to TMT as well as how participation in this mega project is impacting the astronomical community of India.
