This some future stuff right here
The Electromagnetic Thingy!
This awesome telescope views all the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum! It also has 3 billion pixels! Its basically a giant digital camera used to view space and and the galaxy!
This is what the planned finished site is supposed to look like!
Look at this thing, it's all cool looking and sciencey!
The Big Mirror!
This is the M1 mirror for the LSST, the tiny people are nothing compared to the giant space mirror!
How is it so awesome?!
the LSST will use a three billion pixel camera. The overall system will obtain sequential images of the entire observable sky, which can then be combined to provide a digital image of unprecedented depth and area coverage
How many Telescopes are there?!
There are actually two located at the site, the big LSST and the smaller calibration scope. The smaller one will be used to find a target for the LSST to home in on and take a picture of.
Other cool things!!
The LSST is still being built and the site is under construction, so it has not made any discoveries but they hope to find evidence of dark matter and dark energy. The project is expected to see Engineering First Light 2020 and Scientific First Light 2021.
