The LSST Corporation (LSSTC)

Advancing understanding of the dynamic universe by enabling the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Time and Space (LSST) science through research and education

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope Corporation (LSSTC), with headquarters in Tucson, Arizona, is a not-for-profit corporation formed to initiate the LSST Project in order to advance the science of astronomy and physics. LSSTC represents a consortium of nearly 40 institutional members. We are also affliated with 34 international institutions/organizations representing 23 countries. LSSTC continues to enable the exploitation of LSST’s data by advocating for and supporting LSST science through private philanthropy.

Preparing for Big Data / Big Science

With construction underway, the focus of the LSSTC 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 is enabling training for a new generation of young scientists and researchers and preparing the scientific community for the challenges that LSST will bring.
