    Planned Giant Telescope Gets a Huge Influx of Cash

    The group building the Giant Magellan Telescope in Chile has secured a $US205 ($285) million investment that will help push construction of the massive instrument over the finish line. The money will go toward the facility that will house the telescope at the Las Campanas Observatory high in Chile’s Atacama Desert.
