August 8, 2023By Lily McIntyre

At Wasabi, our commitment to corporate social responsibility and philanthropy is intertwined in everything we do. From leveraging our sports partnerships to reach youth players to fundraising for arts endeavors within and beyond our community, Wasabi is committed to making a positive impact on our communities. We are excited to announce the renewal of our philanthropic partnership with the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) Corporation, an ambitious organization conducting a transformative decade-long survey of the southern sky at the Vera C. Rubin Observatory in northern Chile. 

The Power of Data to Change the Universe

As a company that recognizes the immense power of data in shaping our world, Wasabi is thrilled to continue our collaboration with LSST. This project aims to tackle one of humanity's greatest mysteries: understanding what lies within the universe itself. Equipped with the largest digital camera ever built for astronomy and mounted on the Simonyi Survey Telescope, the LSST provides astronomers with the broadest, fastest, and most profound views of the night sky. 

Wasabi's Commitment to Advancing Science

Wasabi is proud to contribute to the LSST. Together, we will assist astronomers in managing the vast and complex data stream generated by the observatory. This support will enable LSST to foster robust research collaborations and train researchers to harness modern data science techniques effectively. 

Impactful Collaboration

Since becoming a founding corporate philanthropic partner of LSST in 2021, Wasabi has witnessed the potential of this groundbreaking endeavor to revolutionize astrophysics. Together with LSST, we envision a future defined by data-driven discoveries and breakthroughs across various domains. By working hand in hand with LSST, we aim to play a vital role in unlocking the secrets of the cosmos and bringing humanity closer to comprehending the wonders that lie beyond our reach.  

Empowering Humanity with Knowledge

The LSST's mission is not limited to astronomers alone; it transcends the boundaries of the scientific community. The discoveries made through this collaboration have the potential to provide critical knowledge about our universe, making a profound impact on how we perceive our existence and our place in the cosmos. 

The Journey Ahead

Wasabi's commitment to extending our partnership with LSST is crucial to our belief that data storage can lead to great discoveries! Together with LSST, we are ecstatic to embark on a journey of exploration, knowledge, and wonder, pushing the boundaries of human understanding. As stewards of our community, we are humbled and honored to play a part in this endeavor and look forward to the groundbreaking discoveries that lie ahead.
