In the quest to obtain precise measurements of the Hubble Constant, Type Ia supernoave have been consistently used as optical standard candles. What if near-infrared observations of SNe joined the race?
Today’s paper constrains cosmological parameters from one of the largest ground-based astrophysical surveys ever undertaken – DES. An insight into their first-year’s data analysis, released in August 2017.
Today’s paper takes you back to the time when anisotropies in the Cosmic Microwave Background first shaped Observational Cosmology into the field it is today.
So far, Gravitational Lensing has allowed us to observe distant faint galaxies or supernovae. Its time to observe individual stars now.
