What time is it? ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Do we really know what time it is? CERN physicist Professor Brian Cox (and author of E=mc2) unlocks the secrets of time in this entertaining and informative program. His journey starts with the Sun, our historical dictator of time, but Brian discovers that the world doesn't always spin like clockwork -- in fact, it flutters, like an irregular heartbeat. In his search for a more reliable way to tell the time, he experiences the physical definition of a second with a cesium atomic clock, then jets across the Atlantic to discover that time can speed up or slow down depending on how near an object is to a strong gravitational field. Still looking for answers, he consults modern ideas like string theory and quantum mechanics that are pointing the way to future breakthroughs

Studying dark energy with supernovae now, soon, and the not-too-distant future by Saul Perlmutter ( )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dr. Saul Perlmutter, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, talks about supernova measurements of the universe's (accelerating) expansion history. The next-generation measurements must take us a dramatic step forward in constraints on systematic uncertainties, since the previous measurements already have statistical uncertainties that are close to the current systematics limits. He shows how some recent results set the stage for these advances, and describes a series of ground- and space-based projects and a new satellite experiment (the SuperNova / Acceleration Probe, "SNAP") that promise a systematics-controlled prize: a detailed expansion history of the universe that can teach us about the nature of the mysterious "dark energy" that accelerates the universe
Measurements of the cosmological parameters "omega" and "lambda" from supernovae by Saul Perlmutter ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A lecture by Professor Perlmutter of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley: Our program to find cosmologically-significant supernovae has resulted in the recent discovery of more than 50 events with redshifts Z=0.35--0.85. The supernovae are discovered before they reach maximum light, and then followed with photometry and spectroscopy from observatories that include Keck 10-meter Telescope and, in one case, the Hubble Space Telescope. Spectra show that these events are amost all type 1a supernovae, the supernova type whose absolute brightness can be determined by their light-curve behavior, from their observed brightness we determine their distance. The observed departure from a linear Hubble law over this wide range of redshifts allows us to determine the average mass density of the Universe, "omega", and the cosmological constant "lambda". The current evidence gives a preliminary indication that we live in a low-mass-density universe
Discovery of the farthest known supernova, and the cosmological implications by Saul Perlmutter ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dr. Saul Perlmutter, Physics Division, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, discusses the technique for finding supernovas; the discovery of a supernova at redshift z = 0.458; and the use of supernovas to measure the cosmological deceleration of the Hubble expansion, and hence the mass density of the universe

An observationalist take on dark energy the return of the optimists by Saul Perlmutter ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Saul Perlmutter, UC Berkeley, presents a springtime antidote to recent doom-and-gloom theoretical prognoses for the fate of life and doubts of future scientific understanding in an accelerating universe. From the observationalists' perspective, the exciting new challenge of studying dark energy -- or its alternatives -- has sparked the development of new measurement techniques and analysis, some that are now beginning to give results, and some just now beginning to be attempted. The expected flood of new, precise cosmological data is precisely what might be expected to trigger a new generation of theoretical ideas and advances. So, while these are clearly multi-year (some decade-long) efforts, the reports of the "death of science" appear exaggerated. He describes recent results and the steps forward for the existing supernova technique (both on the ground and in space with HST and then SNAP), and their combination with the new non-supernova methods, weak lensing and baryon oscillations that together can make this springtime optimism realistic
