LSST: the construction of a discovery machine – Ângelo Fausti (LIneA-LSST)
4 de setembro: 12:30 - 13:30
When science operations begin in 2022, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will conduct a 10-year survey of the southern sky with the world’s largest digital camera. LSST will produce 500 petabytes of image data and a variety of data products to address the most pressing questions about the structure and evolution of the Universe and its content. While science collaborations are getting organized to analyze this unprecedented dataset, these are exciting times for the project as LSST construction approaches completion at Cerro Pachon, Chile. In this talk, I will provide the status of the LSST construction and early commissioning activities that aim to verify, validate and characterize the performance of the different subsystems. In particular, as a member of the Data Management subsystem, I’ll present the LSST Science Platform and the vision of how scientists will interact with data in the era of LSST.
