The LSST Corporation (LSSTC)

To advance understanding of the dynamic universe by enabling LSST science through research and education.

LSSTC, headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation formed to initiate the LSST Project and advance the science of astronomy and physics. LSSTC represents a consortium of nearly 40 institutional members, as well as 34 international contributors representing 23 countries. LSSTC will partner with NSF/AURA and DOE/SLAC in LSST operations and enable the exploitation of LSST’s data by advocating for and supporting LSST science.

Using Big Data for Big Science

With construction underway, LSSTC's focus has turned to preparing the community to use this amazing facility when it becomes operational in 2022.  LSSTC is committed to foster and build new modes of interdisciplinary collaboration at the interface of astronomy, physics, computer science, mathematics, and information science.  Through graduate and postdoctoral fellowships and endowments, science schools, workshops, and think tanks, and support of science collaborations, LSSTC will enable the training of a new generation of young scientists and researchers and prepare the scientific community for the challenges that LSST will bring.
