ESOcast 40: When Speed Matters — Discovery of the Accelerating Universe Wins 2011 Nobel Prize for Physics
This episode of the ESOcast looks at one of the key discoveries in physics: that our Universe is, in fact, not only expanding, but also speeding up. Scientists Saul Perlmutter and Adam Riess of the US and Brian Schmidt of US/Australia were awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics for the find. Having studied a particular type of exploding stars – known as Type 1a supernovae – they concluded that gravity appears to work backwards in distant galaxies, making more distant objects seem to move faster.
