    LSST vs Pan-STARRS

    How will these two surveys differ? Which one is "better"? By how much?

    Pan-STARRS is much better right now because it is collecting data, and LSST won't get first light for a couple years.
    LSST will be amazingly better once it is collecting data. It's telescopes have about 75 times the collecting area of Pan-STARRS, and its sensors are more sensitive, and it will be able to collect finer time-domain data, and see dimmer stars.
