HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii Gov. David Ige says a nonprofit company planning to build one of the world’s biggest telescopes on a mountain many Native Hawaiians consider sacred will continue to postpone construction.
This is the second time the Thirty Meter Telescope has extended a moratorium on building at the summit of Mauna Kea, the highest peak on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Ige didn’t say when construction would resume. He says further announcements about the construction schedule would come from the Thirty Meter Telescope.
Ige said in a statement Friday he’s used the time since the moratorium began on April 7 to listen and learn about Mauna Kea.
The company suspended building after law enforcement arrested protesters for blocking the road to the summit and refusing to leave the construction site.
