Science

The unique aspect of LCOGT science is having a global network of telescopes at our disposal. The areas of astronomy most interesting to us are those which take full advantage of this sort of network; targets which appear suddenly and without warning like supernovae and asteroids; objects which need to be observed for long periods in darkness like exoplanets and binary star systems.  Click here to see our research team
