Giant Magellan Telescope is the work of the GMTO Corporation, an international nonprofit and consortium of 14 universities and research institutions representing Australia, Brazil, Chile, Israel, South Korea, Taiwan, and the United States. The GMTO Corporation is headquartered in Pasadena, California with offices in La Serena and Santiago, Chile. Our mission is to design, build, and operate the Giant Magellan Telescope to enable cutting-edge scientific observations that will revolutionize humanity’s fundamental understanding of the Universe. The 30-meter-class telescope is under construction at Las Campanas Observatory in Chile’s Atacama Desert, one of the best locations on Earth to explore the heavens. When complete in the early 2030s, the “extremely large telescope” will be the largest public-private funded science project in history.
