"The Big Picture: Science from Astronomical Surveys"

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), now under construction in Chile, will image the entire southern sky nearly a thousand times over the next decade. LSST is an example of astronomical surveys that map as much of the sky as possible as quickly as possible in order to make a statistical census of the cosmos. The recent technologies that make such surveys possible will generate rich datasets for exploring the universe.

Space Place is the education and public outreach center of the UW-Madison Astronomy Department. If you are interested in attending one of our programs, please follow the link to the right for more information.
