Default Telescope tracks 35 million galaxies in Dark Energy hunt By Pallab Ghosh Science cor

A super telescope has begun the most detailed survey of the Universe ever undertaken.
The aim of the five-year programme is to shed light on Dark Energy - the mysterious force thought to drive an accelerated expansion of the Universe.
The instrument effectively contains 5,000 mini-telescopes. Each one can image a galaxy every 20 minutes.
In just one year scientists will have surveyed more galaxies than all the other telescopes in the world combined.
