The next general meeting of the Chicago Astronomical Society will be held Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at the Adler Planetarium, beginning at 7 PM

Our speaker will be Antonella Palmese from Fermilab.
What is dark energy? How do galaxies evolve? How much matter exists in the universe? How does the universe expand? Antonella will explain how we try to answer these questions with galaxy surveys and the latest results revealed by the Dark Energy Survey and the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument.
Antonella Palmese
Antonella Palmese is a postdoctoral research assistant at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and an associate fellow at KICP (University of Chicago). Her research has focused on the Dark Energy Survey and, more recently, on the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument. Her main interests include gravitational waves generated by events such as merging black holes and neutron stars. She is also interested in galaxy clusters and how galaxies evolve within them.

Please join us on November 12 for this exciting cosmology focused discussion.
