Dark Energy  

In General > s.a. cosmological constant [including history] and models; cosmology [future]; varying constants.
* Idea: A component of the content of the universe with negative pressure, which accelerates its expansion; May be a cosmological contant or may be dynamical; The name seems to have been introduced by M Turner.
* Status: 2003, Various methods give –1.22 < w < –0.78 at 95% c.l.; 2004–2005, Analysis still favors a cosmological constant – other models give as good a fit, but are not as simple (1-parameter) or physically motivated – with quintessence a second possibility; 2006, Evidence from Brad Schaefer's analysis of distant GRBs that it may be changing; 2006, Evidence from supernovas at z = 1 consistent with constant dark energy; 2007, Supernova survey gives w = –1.07 (+0.09–0.09 stat, 1 σ) (± 0.12 sys); 2009, Observations are still consistent with a cosmological constant; 2015, First data from the Dark Energy Survey.
* Plans: 2006, Two satellites planned, DES (possible launch 2008–2009) and SNAP (launch after 2010).
