Astrophysicists have created a 3D map of the universe that spans nearly two billion light years and is the most complete picture of our cosmic neighbourhood to date.
The spherical map of galaxy superclusters will lead to a greater understanding of how matter is distributed in the universe and provide key insights into dark matter, one of physics’ greatest mysteries.
A $1.6-million gift to the University of Waterloo and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology by The Gerald Schwartz & Heather Reisman Foundation is enabling world-changing research in a range of disciplines, including lung diseases and quantum computing.
Nearly 250 students in grades 6, 7 and 8 from Waterloo region will unite to explore, discover and compete tomorrow at the Let’s Talk Science Challenge. The event is hosted at the University of Waterloo by Let’s Talk Science, an award-winning national charitable youth development organization.
