LSST: From Science Drivers to Reference Design and Anticipated Data Products
TLDR
The LSST design is driven by four main science themes: probing dark energy and dark matter, taking an inventory of the solar system, exploring the transient optical sky, and mapping the Milky Way. Expand
Introduction to Space Physics
Introduction 1. Brief history of solar terrestrial physics 2. Physics of space plasmas 3. The Sun 4. The solar wind 5. Collisionless shocks 6. Interactions with magnetized planets 7. Ionospheres 8.Expand
The Inclination Distribution of the Kuiper Belt
We develop a general method for determining the unbiased inclination distribution of the Kuiper belt using only the inclination and latitude of discovery of known Kuiper belt objects (KBOs). TheseExpand
EVIDENCE FOR A DISTANT GIANT PLANET IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM
Recent analyses have shown that distant orbits within the scattered disk population of the Kuiper Belt exhibit an unexpected clustering in their respective arguments of perihelion. While severalExpand
LSST Science Book, Version 2.0
A survey that can cover the sky in optical bands over wide fields to faint magnitudes with a fast cadence will enable many of the exciting science opportunities of the next decade. The Large SynopticExpand
Photometric Observations Constraining the Size, Shape, and Albedo of 2003 EL61, a Rapidly Rotating, Pluto-sized Object in the Kuiper Belt
We present measurements at optical wavelengths of the spectral reflectance, rotational light curve, and solar phase curve of 2003 EL61. With apparent visual magnitude 17.5 at 51 AU from the Sun, thisExpand
The spectra of t dwarfs I: near-infrared data and spectral classification
We present near-infrared spectra for a sample of T dwarfs, including 11 new discoveries made using the 2 Micron All Sky Survey. These objects are distinguished from warmer (L-type) brown dwarfs byExpand
THE ABSOLUTE MAGNITUDE DISTRIBUTION OF KUIPER BELT OBJECTS
Here we measure the absolute magnitude distributions (H-distribution) of the dynamically excited and quiescent (hot and cold) Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs), and test if they share the sameExpand
Discovery of a Candidate Inner Oort Cloud Planetoid
We report the discovery of the minor planet (90377) Sedna, the most distant object ever seen in the solar system. Prediscovery images from 2001, 2002, and 2003 have allowed us to refine the orbitExpand
Binarity in Brown Dwarfs: T Dwarf Binaries Discovered with the Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field P
We present the discovery of two T dwarf binaries, 2MASS 1225-2739AB and 2MASS 1534-2952AB, identified in a sample of 10 T dwarfs imaged with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field PlanetaryExpand
