#ICYMI, we held our first #FacebookLive event yesterday to chat about the day's big news release, "Rare Supernova Discovery Ushers in New Era for Cosmology." Watch now!

Using an automated supernova-hunting pipeline based at NERSC, astronomers have captured multiple images of a gravitationally lensed Type Ia supernova for the first-time! This detection is currently the only one of its kind, but astronomers believe that if they can find more, they may be able to measure the rate of the universe’s expansion w/in four percent accuracy. Two Berkeley Lab researchers have a method for identifying more of these events using existing wide-field surveys.

Join us for a Facebook LIVE today at 1p PT to discuss the news with our scientists.

Major step taken toward a future of personal, off-grid water sources. Luke Skywalker and his fellow moisture farmers on Tatooine would be proud.
