I am chairing a short session at the Project & Community Workshop on star cluster science and I would like to invite you to participate. The session will be on Tuesday the 10th of August from 19:00 to 20:00 UTC.
The LSST will provide a unique opportunity to study a huge sample of star clusters with a wide range of properties, from young low mass clusters in the Solar Neighbourhood to the most massive old star clusters out to a redshift of z = 0.05. This session will provide a chance to discuss future LSST-related science with star clusters, with a particular focus on lessons learned from relevant precursor studies, and the challenges that still need to be addressed.
Star cluster studies span a wide range of LSST science areas, from stellar astrophysics, stellar variables, the structure and evolution of the Milky Way and its satellites, the formation and assembly histories of nearby galaxies, the low surface brightness universe to the dark matter content of galaxies.
