## Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Commits $200 Million Support for Thirty-Meter Telescope Jill Perry The California Institute of Technology and the University of California have received a$200 million commitment over nine years from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation toward the further development and construction of the Thirty-Meter Telescope (TMT). Funding under this commitment will be shared equally between the two universities, with matching gifts from the two institutions expected to bring the total to \$300 million. When built, TMT will be the largest telescope in the world.

## A Giant Step toward Infinitesimal Machinery

Jill Perry
What are the ultimate limits to miniaturization? How small can machinery--with internal workings that move, turn, and vibrate--be produced? What is the smallest scale on which computers can be built? With uncanny and characteristic insight, these are questions that the legendary Caltech physicist Richard Feynman asked himself in the period leading up to a famous 1959 lecture, the first on a topic now called nanotechnology.
