Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST)
Using Twinkles, the new simulation of images of our night sky, scientists get ready for a gigantic cosmological survey unlike any before.
Scientists furthered studies of the Higgs boson, neutrinos, dark matter, dark energy and cosmic inflation and continued the search for undiscovered particles, forces and principles.
Can the same type of technology Facebook uses to recognize faces also recognize particles?
Next-generation telescopic surveys will work hand-in-hand with supercomputers to study the nature of dark energy.
A recent uptick in the discovery of the smallest, oldest galaxies benefits studies of dark matter, galaxy formation and the evolution of the universe.
When the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) begins in 2022 to take images of the entire southern night sky over and over again for 10 years, it will produce deeper, wider and faster views of the cosmos than any other telescope before.
It’s not easy being clean.
Exploding stars have an immense capacity to destroy—and create.
