Dark Energy Rules the Universe (and Why the Dinosaurs Don't)
Dr. Eric Linder, Director of the Institute for Nuclear and Particle Physics at Berkeley Lab; Deputy Director of the Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics
The revolutionary discovery that the expansion of the universe is speeding up, not slowing down from gravity, means that 75% of our universe consists of mysterious dark energy. Berkeley Lab has played a key role in this research, traced from why the dinosaurs became extinct to the supernova breakthrough a decade ago to the design of a new space telescope to reveal the nature of the unknown physics ruling our universe.
Although ten years has passed since its discovery, the nature of dark energy is still unknown and has been termed the most important problem facing 21st century physics.
Join Dr. Eric Linder as we delve into the mystery of Dark Energy ten years later.
