Alex Filippenko was a member of both teams whose leaders were awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics for discovering the accelerating Universe.

Mysterious dark matter and dark energy are aspects of our Universe that we cannot see, taste, or feel, but they are very important: dark matter keeps galaxies gravitationally bound, and dark energy is accelerating the expansion of the Universe. We wouldn't exist without dark matter, or if dark energy were much stronger than it is!
