The researchers behind the detection of the universe's expansion, in the 1990s, have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 2011. One of the Laureates is Dr. Saul Perlmutter, from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley. Perlmutter leads the Supernova Cosmology Project, one of whose team members is Dr. M. Pilar Ruiz Lapuente, a researcher for the University of Barcelona Institute of Cosmos Sciences (ICCUB) and lecturer at the Department of Astronomy and Meteorology. The other Laureates, Dr. Brian P. Schmidt and Dr. Adam G. Riess, direct the High-Z Supernova Search Team.

 

 

M. Pilar Ruiz Lapuente is co-author of the article, published by the group led by Dr. Saul Pelmutter, which describes the work for which the Nobel Prize in Physics 2011 has been awarded. The study describes the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the Universe through observations of distant supernovae and the existence of a new substance, called dark energy, which drives the acceleration.
