This grant to UC Berkeley’s Space Science Laboratory provides funds for nine additional months on the University of Hawaii 2.2 meter telescope to support the Legacy Nearby Supernova Catalog project (#556) and to serve as a bridge to planned future efforts to study supernovae and other transient objects. The first goal of these grants is to "understand the nature of dark energy" which has been identified as one of the most important scientific endeavors of our era by the National Research Council. The second goal is to leverage the unique telescope, instrumentation, and analysis program developed for the supernova search by applying it to studies of other astrophysical transients, opening up new unexplored territory in astronomy.
