The Pan-STARRS1 Surveys
Pan-STARRS1 has carried out a set of distinct synoptic imaging sky surveys including the $3\pi$ Steradian Survey and the Medium Deep Survey in 5 bands ($grizy_{P1}$). The mean 5$\sigma$ point source
The Complete Light-curve Sample of Spectroscopically Confirmed SNe Ia from Pan-STARRS1 and Cosmological Constraints from the Combined Pantheon Sample

A Three-Dimensional Map of Milky-Way Dust
We present a three-dimensional map of interstellar dust reddening, covering three-quarters of the sky out to a distance of several kiloparsecs, based on Pan-STARRS 1 and 2MASS photometry. The map
Galactic reddening in 3D from stellar photometry – an improved map
We present a new 3D map of interstellar dust reddening, covering three quarters of the sky (declinations of δ ≳ −30°) out to a distance of several kiloparsecs. The map is based on high-quality
The Pan-STARRS1 survey is collecting multi-epoch, multi-color observations of the sky north of declination –30° to unprecedented depths. These data are being photometrically and astrometrically
A brief visit from a red and extremely elongated interstellar asteroid
Observations and analysis of the object 1I/2017 U1 (‘Oumuamua) that demonstrate its extrasolar trajectory, and that enable comparisons to be made between material from another planetary system and from the authors' own, reveal it to be asteroidal with no hint of cometary activity despite an approach within 0.25 astronomical units of the Sun.
The Pan-STARRS wide-field optical/NIR imaging survey
Pan-STARRS is a highly cost-effective, modular and scalable approach to wide-field optical/NIR imaging. It uses 1.8m telescopes with very large (7 square degree) field of view and revolutionary1.4
The Pan-STARRS1 Database and Data Products
The database is described in detail, including the construction of the database, the provenance of the data, the schema, and how the database tables are related.
An ultraviolet–optical flare from the tidal disruption of a helium-rich stellar core
A luminous ultraviolet–optical flare from the nuclear region of an inactive galaxy at a redshift of 0.1696 is reported and it is determined that the disrupted star was a helium-rich stellar core, modulo a factor dependent on the mass and radius of the star disrupted.
The Extremely Red, Young L Dwarf PSO J318.5338-22.8603: A Free-floating Planetary-mass Analog to Directly Imaged Young Gas-giant Planets
We have discovered using Pan-STARRS1 an extremely red late-L dwarf, which has (J – K){sub MKO} = 2.78 and (J – K){sub 2MASS} = 2.84, making it the reddest known field dwarf and second only to 2MASS
