Abstract

Vera C. Rubin Observatory will be a key facility for small body planetary astronomy over the next decade. It will carry out the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST),discovering and characterizing large numbers (10–100 times more than currently known) of small solar system bodies. We summarize science highlights and make brief recommendations.
