Talk title and abstract

Illuminating the Nature of Cosmic Acceleration

The nature of cosmic acceleration (known as "dark energy") remains a mystery, twenty-four years after the observations that first discovered its existence. I will discuss how future space missions can probe dark energy and test gravity, and advance our understanding of cosmic acceleration.
