Galaxy Clusters: Giants of the Universe

This is a new easy-to-understand general-public presentation!


Success! Brian Hart graduated March, 2008 with the Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the University of California, Irvine. He studied clusters of galaxies to learn the story of the Universe. Clusters of galaxies are big. Dark matter is everywhere.

Clusters of galaxies are the biggest things in the Universe. Sometimes, they bump into each other. Theory says that the Universe should be expanding from a Big Bang. The expansion moves clusters of galaxies farther apart from each other. They should hit each other less often as the Universe expands. Brian looked out into the depths of the Universe to see if this is so.

The story of this project begins with a small satellite orbiting a shining, blue planet in the outskirts of a remote Galaxy….
