Center faculty, staff, and students contribute to "most precise 3D map of the universe to date"

Faculty, research staff, and students from the Center for Particle Cosmology and the Department of Physics and Astronomy have contributed to the efforts of the Dark Energy Survey, a global collaboration to better understand the role of dark matter and dark energy in the universe. The collaboration includes Professors Gary Bernstein, Bhuvnesh Jain, and Masao Sako along with other scholars and students. Dr. Marco Gatti, CfPC Postdoctoral Fellow, commented that "this map is a legacy for our collaboration and also for other scientists around the world that can use this map for any scientific purposes...this really advances the field because now we have a better understanding of which mapping techniques are better."
