Colloquium

A guided tour of the LSST Science Book

Salman Habib
LANL

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) was recently given the highest ranking in the Astro2010 Decadal Review, and is expected to begin operations around 2016. Supported by NSF and DOE, LSST is an extremely ambitious imaging sky survey, simultaneously providing large coverage, exceptional depth, and transient detection capabilities. The roughly 600 page LSST Science Book (http://arxiv.org/abs/0912.0201, about 230 authors) outlines the enormous scope of LSST's science mission ranging from studies of the solar system to the largest cosmological scales. In this talk I will (very quickly) cover LSST's basic capabilities and mode of operation and describe the salient features of LSST science, as discussed in more detail in the Science Book.

Host: Sanjay Reddy, reddy@lanl.gov (We will now begin the talks at 1pm and snacks/drinks will be served after the talk. )
