This grant to the University of California’s Berkeley Space Science Laboratory provides funds for 12 additional months on the University of Hawaii’s 2.2 meter telescope to support the current Legacy Nearby Supernova Catalog project (#556, #556.01) to "understand the nature of dark energy" via observations of Type Ia supernovae. In addition, the unique telescope, instrumentation, and analysis program developed for the Supernova Catalog will be leveraged to conduct pioneering surveys for transient astrophysical phenomena.
