This grant to UC Berkeley's Space Sciences Laboratory supports the Nearby Supernova Factory (SNfactory) and development of a catalog of nearby Type Ia supernovae, a special class of very bright exploding stars. The SNfactory is designed to discover hundreds of these nearby supernovae and collect a calibrated spectrum of each one. Outcomes include support of the Legacy Nearby Supernova Catalog that will enable the development of tools critical for greater understanding of Type Ia supernovae as indicators of dark energy.
