Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST)
Next-generation telescopic surveys will work hand-in-hand with supercomputers to study the nature of dark energy.
A recent uptick in the discovery of the smallest, oldest galaxies benefits studies of dark matter, galaxy formation and the evolution of the universe.
It’s not easy being clean.
Exploding stars have an immense capacity to destroy—and create.
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will take the most thorough survey ever of the Southern sky.
The LSST system will alert scientists to changes in space in near-real time.
After more than six years of grinding and polishing, the first-ever dual-surface mirror for a major telescope is complete.
