PROJECT NEWS - Para español, vea abajo

The Data Management (DM) Leadership Team held their quarterly meeting in Princeton this week.  The primary result was an agreement on refinements to the DM Roadmap, the milestone plan for construction and commissioning.  

LSST’s online forum for technical discussion and support of community software is available for all to join at community.lsst.org.

Interested scientists can now self-subscribe to the LSST science mailing list; see the sidebar on lsst.org/scientists for instruction on how to join. 

Bo Xin et al's paper on the LSST curvature wavefront sensing algorithm was published in Applied Optics (http://arxiv.org/abs/1506.04839) and linked to the LSST Publications Page which now support the capability to filter by lead authors.

CORPORATION NEWS

The LSST Transients and Variable Stars Science Collaboration has named Federica Bianco (NYU) as their new co-chair, who will replace Lucianne Walkowicz.  Many thanks to Lucianne for her leadership for many years, and welcome to Federica!

PERSONNEL NOTES

James Parsons joined the team at NCSA as a Research Programmer where he’ll be working on the processing control software for LSST alert production.

LSST 2016 Proyecto y Taller Científico

 

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.
