LSST will bring the Universe to everyone. Anyone with a web browser and a curious mind will be able to ask questions of the database, make discoveries, and fly through space and time with online tools. For the first time, everyone can directly participate in our journey of cosmic discovery. The links below take you to programs and projects that weíre building on as we design programs for sharing the LSST.
There are many opportunities for active engagement by citizen scientists in the exploration and discovery of the cosmos. Learn more about these projects and get involved:
