What is Causing
Cosmic Acceleration?

Probe (SNAP)

In this week's issue of Physical Review Letters, Berkeley Lab’s Eric Linder of the Physics Division explains how state of the art observations of supernovae can map the expansion history over 75% of the age of the universe. The brightness of a supernova translates directly into its distance and light travel time, while its redshift measures the scale of the universe when the supernova exploded. Like tree rings, this record of growth of scales over time, slowing and quickening, tells us about the cosmic environment. For a pdf of the full article go here.

Two Scientists Getting
TV Focus This Month

Astrophysicist Saul Perlmutter and Environmental Scientist Max Sherman are scheduled to appear before the TV cameras at Berkeley Lab this month. Reporter Yung Choi and a crew from KTV, a Korean television station in Los Angeles, will interview Perlmutter on March 17 about his supernova research project. And a team from CBS’ Evening Magazine, also out of Los Angeles, will film Sherman and discuss his studies on duct tape today.
