There will be a FREE physics dialogue, “The Universe Caught Speeding: the Mystery of Dark Energy,” given by Dragan Huterer, University of Michigan, at 5:30 PM, Thursday, May 31, at the Aspen Center for Physics, 6th & Gillespie. In the late 1990s cosmologists discovered that the expansion of the universe is speeding up, not slowing down as expected. This discovery, honored with the Nobel Prize in 2011, has generated waves in the field of cosmology and presents us with a grand mystery: what is the origin and nature of Dark Energy, the stuff that causes the accelerated expansion?
