Core science cases of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) would greatly benefit from overlapping observations with NASA's recently developed Superpressure Balloon (SPB) capability. SPB-based imagers can provide near-space quality and enormous imaging speed in the blue/UV, which can calibrate critical LSST measurements (e.g., galaxy shapes and photometry). Our workshop will explore possible synergies between LSST science and planned, future SPB missions.

19-28 August 2019; La Serena, Chile

30 September - 4 October 2019; Carnegie Observatories, Pasadena, CA

The workshop will be an interactive introduction to the key technologies and facilities for
follow-up observing that will drive astronomy in the LSST era and a chance for scientists to
influence their development. Participants will have exclusive access to a unique proposal
opportunity for development mini-grants and telescope time to kick-start their observing

April 2020; University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL

LSSTCorp’s new Director for Science, Jennifer (Jeno) Sokoloski, comes to us from Columbia University, where she performs multi-wavelength observations of interacting binary stars and stellar transients as a Research Scientist at Columbia’s Astrophysics Laboratory.

Greetings from headquarters in Tucson and best wishes for a happy new year.
