According to Law Decree #353 from March 16, 2016, Chile will go into Winter time schedule this coming weekend. At midnight on Saturday May 14, all clocks in continental Chile and the Chilean Antártica will be set back by one hour (to 11:00 pm, Saturday 14th).  Please consider this time change when making plans for international meetings, video or phone calls. The time difference between Chile and Tucson will be 3 hours.

The next face-to-face meeting of LSST’s Science Advisory Committee will be on Monday August 15, co-located with the All Hands Meeting. The committee’s job is to represent the wider scientific community and to advise the LSST Project Office as decisions are made throughout the LSST construction phase.

The LSST Project Science Team (PST) met in Seattle from May 9th-11th. Topics discussed during this meeting included: the Data Products Definition Document, the image quality error budget, image simulations, deep drilling fields, and calibration.

Financial support for Rubin Observatory 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 Rubin Observatory 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 Rubin Observatory LSST Camera (LSSTCam) is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support Rubin Observatory in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
