NPA Seminar: Charles Baltay, Yale, “Precision Measurement of the Hubble Constant Using Type Ia Supernovae”

Event description: 

It has been realized recently that Type Ia supernova are the most sensitive distance indicators in measuring the Hubble Constant. Our Yale group has been collaborating with the Carnegie Observatory Group (Mark Phillips, Wendy Friedman, et al) with our La Silla/QUEST Supernova Survey providing a substantial part of the supernovae for the most recent precision measurement of the Hubble Constant. Results of this measurement will be presented and and its significance discussed.
