Mysterious Universe: Supernovae, Dark Energy, and Black Holes (Scientists in the Field Series) by Ellen Jackson

The universe is rapidly expanding. Of that much scientists are certain. But how fast? And with what implications for life on earth? Ellen Jackson and Nic Bishop follow Dr. Alex Fillippenko and his High-Z Supernova Search Team to Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii, where they will study space phenomena with the eight-story Keck telescope. They look for supernovae, dying stars that explode with the power of billions of hydrogen bombs. They find black holes, great gaps where time and space do not exist. And they study the effects of dark energy, the mysterious force that scientists believe is pushing the universe apart, causing its constant and accelerating expansion.
