    Clocking the Early Universe

    April 17, 2014: Astronomers have made the most accurate calculation yet of the expansion rate of the young Universe with help from supercomputers at NERSC. Their findings could help uncover the nature of dark energy, the mysterious, repulsive force that pervades our universe causing it to expand at an accelerating rate. Read More »
