August 2019; LSST 2019 Project & Community Workshop, Tucson, AZ

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.

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.
