Dark Energy Survey complete tomorrow

8 January 2019
Tomorrow, Dark Energy Survey finishes six years of taking data!

This experiment is intended to help us better understand the nature of Dark Energy, which drives the accelerated expansion of the universe.

Shown here is the Dark Energy Camera, a 520-megapixel digital camera the collaboration used to collect 50TB of data on over 300 million distant galaxies during the last 6 years. It will be exciting to see what findings come from analyzing all those data!
