Astrophysics & Cosmology
This neutrino-watchers season preview will give you the rundown on what to expect to come out of neutrino research in the coming years.
The SuperCDMS SNOLAB project, a multi-institutional effort led by SLAC, is expanding the hunt for dark matter to particles with properties not accessible to any other experiment.
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will track billions of objects for 10 years, creating unprecedented opportunities for studies of cosmic mysteries.
The accomplished particle physicist will prepare the lab for its role in DUNE, a next-generation experiment designed to demystify neutrinos and their fundamental role in the universe.
Installation of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument begins at Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona.
As members of the lab’s Computer Science Division, they develop the tools needed to handle ginormous data volumes produced by the next generation of scientific discovery machines.
21 of these "science rafts" will go into the world's largest digital camera for astronomy, which is being assembled and tested at SLAC.
Effort to improve the next generation of gravitational wave detectors includes atomic studies of new and better coatings for LIGO’s mirrors at SSRL.
The astrophysicist is recognized for her leadership, mentorship and innovative work in understanding how galaxies form.
The Advanced LIGO gravitational wave detectors have announced their first observation of a binary neutron star coalescence.
