iPhone : What do you get when you cross a galaxy or galaxy cluster with a more distant galaxy or cluster? A gravitational lens! A new study used machine learning to help locate 100s of lens candidates.
iPhone : Congratulations to the DESI Survey for CD-4 approval from DOE Science! This important milestone marks the formal end of construction. It has been been very rewarding to work on this project with such a dedicated and talented team, and we are all very excited to start the survey!
iPhone : A quick timelapse from inside the closed 4m dome. Each evening after the daytime engineering team have left, but before its dark enough to observe, we calibrate DESI Survey with flat field and wavelength lamps... the process takes about 75 minutes:
iPhone : What is actually making up 70 percent of the universe’s energy? We don’t know yet, but projects like Dark Energy Survey & @DESIsurvey supported by @Energy will reveal more #ICYMI energy.gov/science/articl…
