A shared vision of scientific discovery

LSST Discovery Alliance (LSST-DA) aims to maximize the impact of Rubin Observatory’s Legacy Survey of Space and Time. Targeted to begin in 2025, this survey will curate astronomical data at a scale never seen before, producing the ultimate map of our dynamic Universe. LSST-DA removes obstacles between Rubin LSST’s data-intensive output and discovery by developing the LSST Interdisciplinary Network for Collaboration and Computing (LINCC). LINCC is an ecosystem of bold programs that foster innovation, inclusion, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Through our programs, we can propel a revolution in humankind’s understanding of the Universe while transforming the way we do science.
