A shared vision of scientific discovery

LSST Discovery Alliance (formerly LSST Corporation) 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. Our mission is to facilitate critical resources and funding to help researchers prepare for and analyze this eagerly anticipated data. Through bold programs that foster innovation, inclusion, and interdisciplinary collaboration, we can propel a revolution in humankind’s understanding of the Universe while transforming the way we do science.
