ABSTRACT
Astronomical discoveries often happen at the edge of our observational capabilities. To fully analyze telescopic images, researchers must combine data from separate telescopes, but large volumes of data with intrinsic differences make this difficult. SkyQuery, a scalable query engine, helps with this process.
