LSST Solar System Science Collaboration

June 27, 2017 – Over its 10 year lifespan, the Large Synoptic Sky Survey Telescope (LSST) will catalog over 5 million Main Belt asteroids, almost 300,000 Jupiter Trojans, over 100,000 NEOs, over 40,000 KBOs, and over 10,000 comets. Many of these objects will receive hundreds of observations in multiple bandpasses. The LSST Solar System Science Collaboration (SSSC) is preparing methods and tools to analyze this data, as well as understand optimum survey strategies for discovering moving objects throughout the Solar System.

The SSSC launched a new website. Check it out at and please consider joining the collaboration if you’re an eligible researcher.
