Department Colloquium: "The Universe as a Lab for Fundamental Physics: Results from Spider and Future Suborbital Missions"

Wed, 03/16/2016 - 16:00 - 18:00
William Jones (Princeton) Hosted by James Aguirre

I will describe our recent results from observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background, including a status report on the recent flight of the Spider experiment, a balloon borne CMB polarimeter.  I will also discuss a convergence of observational needs and technological capabilities that provide intriguing opportunities for improving our understanding of both the late- and early-time evolution of the Universe.
