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.
March 2019; La Serena, Chile
A nationwide, three-day workshop to gather scientists, engineers, students, and other professionals in related areas with interest in LSST to discuss the project and its scientific potential for the Chilean community. This is the fourth year for this workshop, which started in 2015, with more than 250 participants.
Contact: Patricio Rojo, Universidad de Chile

Spring 2019; Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA
The third of several meetings of the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC), which is actively working to prepare for a multi-probe dark energy analysis of LSST data. Grant funds will provide travel support for junior scientists to attend the DESC Sprint Week, which brings together members to push forward work on DESC code and analysis.
More information to follow.
LSST Support: $12,960
