Bob Abel, physics
professor at Olympic College, has created an amazing opportunity for the general public to hear, ask questions and learn from tsome of the best astronomers in the world. Scientists from around the county who are working on the
groundbreaking telescope known as the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope
(LSST), will be in Bremerton at the Kitsap Conference Center for a scientific workshop. Starting in 2020, the LSST, located in the Andes Mountains of Chile, will scan the sky with a 3,200
megapixel camera and for 10 years gather data from supernovae, asteroids,
and billions of galaxies as they evolve. As part of the conference, the scientists are hosting a week long series of public events to share their work and expertise with the public. Below are posters and quick links to details and schedule for each event.
