University of Michigan astrophysicist to describe 'dark energy' research

It sounds like something that animates an evil empire — and in fact, so-called dark energy does permeate the entire universe, scientists believe.

Scientists are closer than ever to answering those questions — and University of Michigan astrophysicist Gregory Tarlé visits Bates College to summarize progress in this effort at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 17, in Room 204 of Carnegie Science Building, 44 Campus Ave.

Popham Beach vs. the Morse River

Indeed, while an idealized and immutable Popham Beach looms large in the alumni consciousness, the beach itself has rapidly eroded during the 2000s. These days, only a few feet remain at high tide.
