Aims and Goals

Over its 10 year lifespan, the Vera C. Rubin Observatory's Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) will catalog over 5 million Main Belt asteroids, almost 300,000 Jupiter Trojans, over 100,000 NEOs, over 40,000 KBOs, 10s of interstellar objects, 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 goal is to get the SSSC and planetary community together to spend 3 dedicated days towards preparing for the LSST data deluge. After a series of introductory talks, participants will break into working groups to work on mini-projects (ranging from software development to proposal writing). We plan to have simulated catalogs of Solar System detections from the LSST Solar System Processing (SSP) pipelines available at the Sprint.
