Add to Calendar 4/3/2018 3:45 pm 4/3/2018 America/Chicago Astronomy Colloquium - "Updates on the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope" DESCRIPTION:

Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) is currently under construction and will start operations in 2022.  A vast array of science will be enabled by a single deep-wide-fast survey, with about 10,000 square degrees of sky imaged every three nights.  Over its 10 year survey lifetime, > 0.5 Exabytes of data will be produced with no proprietary period to any US scientific communities.  Its data management system will span four key facilities: the Summit Facility on Cerro Pachón, Chile; the Base Facility in La Serena, Chile; the Data Processing and Archiving Facility at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) in Urbana-Champaign, IL; and the Satellite Processing Facility at CC-IN2P3 in Lyon, France.  In this talk, I'll provide an overview and status update of the project, with the focus on the data management and NCSA's involvement.  I'll also discuss ways to get involved with LSST.
