Mini-Volume: LAMOST Experiment for Galactic Understanding and Exploration

Editorial: The LAMOST survey at the Guo Shou Jing Telescope

Joss Bland-Hawthorn


Abstract This special issue is devoted to the LAMOST star/galaxy survey now under way at the Guo Shou Jing Telescope in China. Here I review briefly the LAMOST survey in the context of recent, ongoing and future surveys on the international scene. The primary science goal is to obtain kinematics and abundance information for ten million stars over the Galaxy, far more than all other ground-based surveys combined. This rich trove will provide new insights and understanding about the workings of our Galaxy and its origins.
