The $2M gift will enable the purchase of a nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometer, an instrument the OSIRIS-REx analysis team will use to help find answers to fundamental questions about the origins of the solar system. The donor, who asked to remain anonymous, is a UArizona graduate who made a previous major gift so that the university’s students and faculty will have more time using the Giant Magellan Telescope when it's completed and begins operations at its home in Chile's Atacama Desert.
