Euclid Mission to Explore Dark Energy

Euclid is an ESA mission to map the geometry of the dark Universe. The mission will investigate the distance-redshift relationship and the evolution of cosmic structures.  Penn researchers are part of the Euclid science team.


SDSS Galaxy Survey

The UPenn Fit Catalog provides 2-d galaxy profile fits in several visible bands using SDSS data.  Additional data collected from other sources is provided to facilitate analysis. The catalog is constructed and maintained by Professor Mariangela Bernardi and her group.


Supernovae from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey

Kirigami Topology

Professor Randall Kamien studies the physics and mathematics of kirigami — an extension of origami that allows cutting holes into the paper.  By treating the sheet of paper as a two-dimensional crystalline lattice, the folds, cuts, and pleats, can be understood in terms of topological defects in the underlying structure.
