Waterloo Researchers Target Astronomical Frontiers

The Perimeter Institute, a team of researchers in Waterloo, Ontario have announced their “Centre for the Universe” project.  They hope to use data from the world’s most advanced telescopes and to create new techniques that will all them to become a leader in researching cosmology, black holes, dark matter and dark energy.

The Institute plans on using the Hydrogen Intensity and Real-Time Analysis eXperiment (HIRAX) and Square Kilometer Array telescopes to obtain accurate data and measurements from the early days of the Universe.  They are also working with the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) software systems that allow them to process data at rates up to 13 terabits per second.
