Community Preparations for Early Science with Rubin
Science during year one is a priority for Rubin Observatory operations. In this session the Project will provide an update about options and plans for enabling early science, and community contributions are solicited regarding, e.g., survey strategy, candidate fields, and template generation. Anyone with questions, suggestions for discussion topics, or who would like to contribute content to this session is encouraged to contact the session chairs, Leanne Guy and Bob Blum, or use this Google form.
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).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support LSST in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
