Friends of the Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP)

There has never been a more exciting time for cosmologists. The BCCP brings all the resources of UC Berkeley and its worldwide collaborators to a new generation of cosmologists. Its rich suite of international research studies seek to address four fundamental questions: What is dark energy and how is it causing the expansion of the universe to accelerate? How did space-time come into being early in the universe? What is the dark matter surrounding galaxies and binding them together? Why is there more matter than antimatter in the current universe when they were in equal abundance at very early times? Your gift to the BCCP will support work to answer these questions, and many more.
