The universe is not just expanding -- it is expanding faster every day.

The reason for the acceleration is currently unknown, but astronomical data from future surveys such as Euclid and LSST will dramatically improve our ability to narrow the pool of possibilities. Dr. Levon Pogosian will review the history leading to the astounding discovery of cosmic acceleration in 1998 and the challenges that cosmologists are addressing today.

Levon Pogosian is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at SFU. He uses cosmology as a laboratory for testing laws of Nature. His research interests include cosmic microwave background, dark energy, modified gravity, cosmic strings and cosmological magnetic fields.

Everyone welcome, free admission.
