Exploring the Final Frontier with the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST)

Phil Marshall, Ph.D. is one of many scientists and engineers getting ready to operate the LSST, a big new survey telescope being built in Chile that will use the world's biggest digital camera, currently under construction at SLAC, the national lab down at Stanford University. This remarkable new machine will give us a new way of doing astronomy - and invites us to think about what we mean by mapping the heavens, why we do it, and what we can learn.  Phil will tell us about this new frontier in exploration of the Cosmos.  

Sandwiches will be available for purchase.  Everyone is welcome.
