The fifth Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-V) is an all-sky, multi-epoch spectroscopic survey that will yield optical and infrared spectra of over 6 million objects during its five-year lifetime (2020–2025).

Using SDSS’s existing and anticipated new facilities at Apache Point Observatory and Las Campanas Observatory, SDSS-V will survey the entire sky — mapping the Milky Way using rapid, repeated observations, mapping Local Volume galaxies using wide-angle integral field spectroscopy, and mapping black holes using time-domain spectroscopy of quasars and bright X-ray sources.
