Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST)

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) is a project that will begin observing in Oct. 2022 from a 8.4m telescope in Chile. Over 10 years it will obtain 1000 observations in 6 filters generating 15 TB data nightly.

I was a co-chair of the Transient and Variable Source (TVS) Science Collaboration for a few years, and I am part of the Informatics and Statistics SC. The alert brokers for LSST are currently training on the alerts produced by ZTF.
