Brian Schmidt
Australian National University, Camberra, Australia In 1998 two teams used exploding stars known as Supernovae to discover the Universe was Accelerating. Understanding the cause of the cosmic acceleration is now one of Physics' biggest questions. Brian Schmidt, leader of the High-Z SN Search Team, will describe how exploding stars were used to trace back the Expansion of the Universe more than 10 billion years and uncover the acceleration. He will discuss why these observations may suggest that more than 70% of the Universe is made up of a Dark Energy that permeates the Cosmos, and look at how Astronomers and Physicists are trying to further unravel this cosmic mystery.
