The Thirty Meter Telescope, or TMT for short, is planned to go up in Honolulu, Hawaii in the coming years. The design is the biggest of its kind, and one of the most powerful too.

Topics that the Thirty Meter Telescope will be able to research include "stereoscopic exploration of the dark ages, galaxies and large-scale structures in the young universe offering detailed spectroscopic analysis of galaxies and sub-galactic fragments during the epoch of galaxy assembly," according to DesignBoom. Sounds complicated right? With a telescope of this magnitude, it's no surprise uncomplicated terms are not used to describe the type of work to be done by this scientific monstrosity.

The good part is that the design is sleek, so the TMT will look good from afar, while also doing one heck of a job.
