Moore Foundation funds 30m telescope

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation have just announced that they are giving $200 million (over nine years) to the University of California and Caltech to build a thirty metre optical telescope (TMT). This appears to be extra money on top of previous grants the TMT has received from the Moore Foundation which total $50 million since April 2004. I'm glad to see that the donations are almost following Moore's Law too.
