see details +

Astrophysicist Dr. Heidi Newberg, RPI, presents “On Winning the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics for the Discovery of Dark Energy”. The 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded ``for the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the Universe through observations of distant supernovae" with one half to Saul Perlmutter & his team The Supernova Cosmology Project and the other half jointly to Brian P. Schmidt and Adam G. Riess. Astrophysicist and President of the Dudley Observatory, Heidi Newberg was a founding member of The Supernova Cosmology Project, one of the competing teams to be awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics.  She will describe what Dark Energy is, how it was discovered, what it is like to work on ground-breaking scientific research with The Supernova Cosmology Project and her reflections from the award ceremony itself. A Star Party (rain or shine) will follow the lecture. We’ll look at the night sky outside through telescopes or inside the Suits-Bueche Planetarium if rainy.
