2011 Nobel Laureate for Physics

In 1998 two teams traced back the expansion of the universe over billions of years and discovered that it was accelerating, a startling discovery that indicated more than 70% of the cosmos was in the form of dark energy. 2011 Nobel Laureate for Physics Brian Schmidt, leader of the High-Redshift Supernova Search Team, will describe this discovery and explain how astronomers have used observations to trace our universe's history back more than 13 billion years, leading them to ponder the ultimate fate of the cosmos.
