Exploring the dark universe with supercomputers
Argonne researchers are exploring the dark universe with supercomputers. The team’s work was recently featured in Symmetry Magazine.
The 2020s could see a rapid expansion in dark energy research.
For starters, two powerful new instruments will scan the night sky for distant galaxies. The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, or DESI, will measure the distances to about 35 million cosmic objects, and the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, or LSST, will capture high-resolution videos of nearly 40 billion galaxies.
