Testing the Dark Energy Paradigm and Beyond
If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Titterington.
One of the greatest mysteries in the whole of physics is the prospect that at present 75% of the universe is made from a mysterious substance known as ‘Dark Energy’, which causes an acceleration of the cosmic expansion. The lecture will review the current evidence for Dark Energy and current and future international projects, in particular the ‘Dark Energy Survey’, which has just achieved its first light on the Blanco Telescope in Chile.
