The SED Machine

Abstract
Wide-field telescopes, enormous CCDs, and sophisticated software pipelines have led us to the epoch of "time-domain" astronomy. Synoptic surveys are now efficient detecting new transient events. Indeed, with today's technology it is possible to discover a supernova every 20 minutes. At the same time, we have not realized the full gains of these discoveries because we lack sufficient spectroscopic capability to classify transients.
