Understanding Dark Energy at SoVerA meeting

In 2011, a Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for the discovery that the universe appears to not only be expanding, but doing so at an increasing rate.  We call the cause of this acceleration of the expansion of space itself “Dark Energy” and we don’t yet know what it is or how it works. SoVerA will present a series of educational videos by PBS Digital Studios that will dive into how theory and observation have led us to one of the greatest cosmological questions of our generation and whose answer will be critical to our understanding of the cosmos.

Take advantage of abundant Q&A and discussion with local astronomers.  Contact Erik Schmitt with any questions: eriktschmitt@gmail.com
