In addition to managing Survey construction and operations, University of Chicago scientists
have taken on much of the work of developing, testing, and maintaining
the software to process and analyze the spectroscopic data from the Sky
Survey. By the end of the project, the Survey will have obtained and
processed spectroscopic observations of approximately one million
galaxies and one hundred thousand quasars. In addition, the
spectroscopic survey will observe many stars, as well as other
interesting objects discovered in the photometric survey.
