Opening a Window of Discovery on the Dynamic Universe

The LSST Team

The effort to build the LSST is partnership between public and private organizations which is actively being supported and developed by more than one hundred astronomers, physicists, and engineers spanning the globe, who see the LSST as the next big leap in charting the heavens and probing nature's mysteries as well as seeing it as an exciting technological challenge and a new model for doing science with big data.

Financial support for LSST comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded LSST Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).  The DOE-funded effort to build the LSST camera is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
