“Subaru Telescope & dark energy” Hiroshi Karoji
Have you heard of “Subaru Telescope”? It`s a huge telescope so that its primary mirrar is 8.2 meter in diameter. It is on the summit of Mauna-Kea in Hawaii.
As you may know there are some more (more than 10) Mauna Kea International Observatories and they are competing each other / researching together. Today I will talk about dark energy which could be a key for our future in the universe since it occupies 3/4 of the universe. How do we (Subaru Telescope) confront with such a tough study?
