New Rubin Observatory Science Release: Interstellar Objects

We’re pleased to share the first in a series of Rubin science releases, intended to bring public awareness to the revolutionary science that will be done with Rubin Observatory and the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST). The releases are a collaborative effort between Rubin Education and Public Outreach (EPO) and NOIRLab Communications, Education, & Engagement (CEE). Each one will feature one or more scientists who are preparing to work with Rubin/LSST data. We anticipate a new release approximately each month leading up to the start of operations. In addition to being distributed to media outlets, the releases will be featured on both the Rubin and NOIRLab websites, and promoted on social media. We encourage you to share these bilingual releases with your networks to help generate public excitement about Rubin Observatory.

The first release, “Visitors from Distant Stars: Rubin Observatory Will Detect an Abundance of Interstellar Objects Careening Through Our Solar System,” is available at the links below:
