New LSST Web Presence Launched

After many months of effort, new LSST web pages went live on July 28 at www.lsst.org. This new web presence offers a more modern look that is consistent across the many audiences served by the site, including the Public and Scientists, Project Team, and LSST Corporation. The site architecture allows for easier updates with the responsibility for keeping content current distributed across a group of subject-specific content editors. Using a responsive Drupal theme, the website is designed to scale with different screen sizes on multiple platforms and browsers. Currently, mobile devices account for about 15% of lsst.org visits; however, we expect that number to continue to grow.

Financial support for LSST comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded LSST Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).  The DOE-funded effort to build the LSST camera is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
