Concluding Remarks JD13
Ambitious plans for massive follow-up with Pan-Starrs 4 and LSST are in place, but these are not yet funded.
Concluding Remarks JD13
SDSS already extends this a few magnitudes fainter, over a large sky area, and the plan is that VST/VISTA, Pan-Starrs 4 and LSST would go fainter still (Kaiser), and even provide some modest accuracy proper motions beyond the Gaia limit.
Concluding Remarks JD13
Future studies of this type will be facilitated with the new capability for large-scale temporal sampling of normal galaxies provided by Pan-STARRS and LSST.
