75% Say Mauna Kea Beats Chile for TMT Location Site… Poll Still Open

I’ve posted this non-scientific¬† Thirty Meter Telescope poll on and off for the last nine months on my blog.

As of this posting 75% of the readers that participated in the blog are in favor of the TMT project being located in Hawaii instead of Chile.

I’ll post it once again so anyone that hasn’t had a chance to vote on this can. If you have voted before… your IP address won’t allow you to vote again.

This is non scientific and I don’t have much control of the poll.

If you haven’t voted before… feel free to vote again.

The current results show that 75% of the people that have participated so far are in favor of the TMT being located on Mauna Kea.

  1. It would truly be a shame if this went to Chili instead.

    It is way more than the jobs. It is the educational money, the number of astronomers and scientists and general tourists that will also come and spend money every day of every year. It would be a huge plus for the Big Island.

    Opponents – please don’t claim “environmental impact”. Anyone who has been up there knows nothing lives or grows up there. The whole area is more free of trash than any local beach or park despite having thousands of people going up on a daily basis.

  2. Aloha Judi, I have set this poll up to be as impartial as I can, so only one vote per IP address is allowed. Thanks for participating.

  3. I’m glad someone is taking a non-scientific poll that shows what we all know in our hearts – TMT belongs on Hawai`i Island. I hope everyone votes frequently and often for TMT to come here and bring its science, jobs, educational resources, respect for the local culture and investment in Hawai`i Island’s future!
