Sandrine Thomas, Project Scientist for LSST’s Telescope and Site Subsystem, took some time out from her busy work schedule last week to sit down with Alison Rose of Inigo Films for an extended on-camera interview. Interviews were also conducted with LSST Director Steve Kahn, LSST Deputy Director Beth Willman, and LSST Project Manager Victor Krabbendam.
Each of the four interviewees gave his or her own perspective on the rewards and challenges involved in leading a diverse, distributed team tasked with building a revolutionary telescope. The interviews were conducted as informal conversations, allowing for in-depth explorations of interesting topics.
Alison Rose was previously contracted for a multimedia project, featured in a recent blog post, documenting construction of LSST on Cerro Pachón, A short video featuring material obtained during this project can be seen here.
Footage from the interviews and Cerro Pachón construction will be included in a video about the LSST project produced for Asteroid Day Live, a 24-hour online broadcast on June 30, and will be archived for use in future LSST Education and Public Outreach materials.
