This page contains links to information for scientists and students that are interested in doing astronomical research with the future data products from the Rubin Observatory and its Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST).
Stay connected. Everyone is welcome to obtain an account in the Rubin Community Forum, which is the main online platform to get news, discuss science, and ask questions.
Join an LSST Science Collaboration. These independent, worldwide communities of scientists with common research interests are working together to prepare for LSST science. Students are especially welcome.
Prepare for LSST. If access to simulated data products might help you prepare for LSST science, follow the "Data Preview 0" link in the left sidebar menu to learn more.
