This week 200 members of the Cosmic Microwave Background Stage-4 (CMB-S4) collaboration are meeting at SLAC to focus on the continuing development of this science research project. CMB-S4 and the next generation telescopes will provide measurements of the cosmic microwave background at unprecedented precision and permit fundamental new insights into a broad range of physics. These measurements will enable the search for signatures of primordial gravitational waves, probe the nature of dark matter and dark energy, map the matter throughout the universe, and capture transient phenomena in the microwave sky.
Join cosmologist, Dr. Christian Reichardt, as he explores the many mysteries of the universe. Dr. Reichardt will share why astrophysics travel to the South Pole to see the beginning of time. He will discuss the expansion of the universe, evidence of the hot Big Bang, and the science of mapping the cosmic microwave background.
Registration is required.
