The Sloan Digital Sky Survey: Results and Challenges

Tom Quinn


University of Washington - Department of Astronomy

The Sloan Digital Sky Survey is a project to make a detailed 3-D map of the locations of 1 million galaxies in the local Universe. In addition it will provide information about 100's of millions of galaxies and stars, 100 thousand quasars, and 100 thousand asteroids. I will present early results of the survey, and discuss the challenges that need to be addressed to make full use of the entire survey.
