Special Public Lecture by
2011 Novel Prize Laureate, Dr. Brian P. Schmidt
"The Accelerating Universe"

In 1998, two teams traced back the expansion of the universe over billions of years and discovered that it was accelerating, a startling discovery that suggests that more than 70% of cosmos is contained in a previously unknown form of matter, called Dark Energy.
The 2011 Nobel Laureate for Physics, Dr. Brian Shumidt, leader of the High-Redshift Supernova Search Team, will describe this discovery and explain how astronomers have used observations to trace our universe's history back more than 13 billion years, leading them to ponder the ultimate fate of the cosmos.
