Project Description

This project will connect some of the world’s largest and most detailed extreme-scale cosmological simulations with large-scale data obtained from the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) conducted at the Rubin Observatory, currently under construction in Chile. This astronomical survey will provide some of the most comprehensive observations of the visible sky to date. The simulations complement the observations by enabling unique probes of the universe using computations based on the underlying physics. By implementing cutting-edge data-intensive and machine learning techniques, this combined approach will usher in a new era of cosmological inference targeted at scientific breakthroughs.
