Supernovae [Frontiers and controversies in Astrophysics]
Presents part of course, Frontiers and controversies in Astrophysics, when Professor Bailyn shows the rate of the expansion of the universe is discussed along with the Big Rip theory and the balance of dark energy and dark matter in the universe over time. The point at which the universe shifts from accelerating to decelerating is examined. Worries related to the brightness of high redshift supernovae and the effects of gravitational lensing are explained. The lecture also describes current project designs for detecting supernovae at high or intermediate redshift, such as the Joint Dark Energy Mission (JDEM) and Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST)Educação Superior::Ciências Exatas e da Terra::Astronomia
