The High-Z SN Search Team is an international group of astronomers interested in using type Ia supernovae to trace the expansion of the Universe from the present day to 9 billion years in the Past. In 1998, along with another team, the Supernova Cosmology Project, we uncovered evidence that the Universe is accelerating as it expands. To find out more about the Universe and our work, visit our public information area which contains an in-depth description of our work for non-scientists, lots of pretty pictures, and an update of our current work.
