Prof. Greg Rudnick at the University of Kansas is playing an important role in BigBOSS, a huge new plan to grasp why the expansion of the universe is accelerating rather than slowing down. This mystery of physics is due to little-understood "dark energy," which has been calculated to make up roughly 70 percent of the cosmos. In addition to giving astronomers a better understanding of dark energy, BigBOSS will be useful for investigating a wide array of questions ranging from the evolution of stars in our own galaxy to the large scale structure of the universe.
