Exploring 14 Billion Years of Cosmic History
11/10/2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Dr. William Wester and researchers of the Dark Energy Survey are using the world’s biggest CCD (charge-coupled device) camera and telescope to measure the 14-billion-year history of cosmic expansion with the highest precision ever.
The results of this effort, along with other experimental results and theoretical predictions of accelerator-based particle physics experiments at Fermilab, shed light on the birth and evolution of the universe immediately after the Big Bang and provide evidence for such phenomena as dark matter and dark energy.
