Worlds of Possibility: Gift Helps Unlock Secrets of the Universe

What starts here reveals the universe. A world-changing gift of $10 million from visionary philanthropist David Booth increases UT's access to the Giant Magellan Telescope, which will help students in the College of Natural Sciences peer far into the universe.


"UT Austin competes with other universities for faculty and for students," says Dr. Taft Armandroff, director of UT's McDonald Observatory. "Having the Giant Magellan Telescope is an incredible lure to draw people to our graduate program and to our faculty."

Donors like David Booth keep UT Austin on the front lines of the future: sparking the imagination and driving discovery.
