The LSST view of the inner Solar system
Activity: Talk or presentation › Oral presentation
Alan Fitzsimmons - Speaker
LSST is due to start making commissioning observations in 2020, with limited test surveys in 2021, and full surveys planned to commence in 2022. The telescope and camera will have a 9.6 square degree field of view and a single exposure limiting magnitude of g’=25.0. Capable of surveying up to 4400 square degrees per night, LSST will provide a more than an order of magnitude increase in the discovery and observation rate of Solar system objects. In this talk I will concentrate on what we might anticipate the Inner Solar system might look like by the end of the 2020's, and the resulting science that will be enabled by LSST.
