Dr. Bharat Ratra, Kansas State University
Dark energy is the leading candidate for the mechanism that is responsible for causing the cosmological expansion to accelerate. (The observational discovery of the accelerating cosmological expansion was recently honored by the award of a Nobel Prize.) He will describe the data which persuade cosmologists that (as yet undetected) dark energy and dark matter are by far the main components of the energy budget of the universe at the present time.
