Tracking the history of the universe's expansion
A brand new radio telescope in Canada just started searching space for
digitized signals that can help the instruments measure the expansion of
the universe. The telescope called the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity
Mapping Experiment, or CHIME, uses the digitized signals it collects to
create a three dimensional map of hydrogen density to measure the
expansion of the universe, according to the CHIME website.
