Astrophysics & Cosmology
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.
System tests at SLAC continue with 32 light sensors - up from a single one - in a small-scale version of the future experiment, which will use nearly 500 of them.
Instead of searching for dark matter particles, a new device will search for dark matter waves.
More than 100 students worked on projects ranging from website development to imaging techniques for X-ray studies, learning new ways to apply their talents.
The summer school explored upcoming opportunities to expand our understanding of the universe and its fundamental physics, from mysterious dark matter to recently detected gravitational waves.
