- Monday, April 8th, 2013 - MAC - Oregon Nobel Laureate Symposium: The Accelerating Universe
In 1998 two teams traced back the expansion of the universe and learned that it was accelerating, a startling discovery that suggests more than 70 percent of the cosmos is contained in previously unknown Dark Energy. Co-recipient of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics and leader of the High-Redshift Supernova Search Team, Brian Schmidt will explain how astronomers have traced our universe's history back some 13 billion years, leading them to ponder the ultimate fate of the cosmos. Established at Linfield in 1985, the Oregon Nobel Laureate Symposium, one of only five such events in the world, engages Nobel laureates in discussions of issues of global significance.
