Supernova: Physics and Cosmology in the Next Decade

With the aim of furthering our understanding of dark energy, this project will attempt to analyse supernovae, the violent thermonuclear explosions from dying stars, to make measurements of this mysterious and unknown force. In particular, the researchers plan to study a new and rare form of supernova explosion that may allow them to make measurements in the very distant Universe. At the same time, they also want to understand the physics of the exploding stars better. The project is due to start this month and will be undertaken by a team of three postdoctoral researchers and two postgraduate students. The grant will provide five years of confirmed funding.
