SDSS-V is the first facility providing multi-epoch optical & IR spectroscopy across the entire sky, as well as offering contiguous integral-field spectroscopic coverage of the Milky Way and Local Volume galaxies. This panoptic spectroscopic survey continues the strong SDSS legacy of innovative data and collaboration infrastructure.
A time-domain, optical+IR spectroscopic survey of Milky Way stars of all types.
(The Ohio State University)
An optical, integral-field spectroscopic survey of the Milky Way and its neighbors.
(University of Texas at Austin)
SDSS-V, like previous SDSS surveys, remains committed to making its data publicly available in a format that is helpful to a broad range of users, from beginner students to both amateur and professional astronomers. However, without extensive federal or other large-scale funding, this commitment is not possible to fulfill without membership contributions from institutional partners. SDSS-V is actively seeking participation from new membership partners. Our institutional partners benefit from early access to proprietary data, participation in the survey planning process, and involvement of their faculty, postdocs, and students in our global science collaborative network.
