The goal of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) project is to conduct a 10-year survey of the sky that will deliver a 200 petabyte set of images and data products that will address some of the most pressing questions about the structure and evolution of the universe and the objects in it. The telescope is currently under construction and it is expected to start operations in 2022. KICC scientists are involved in the exploitation of various aspects of the survey.
