Calán/Tololo Survey

(Calán/Tololo Supernova Search)
(late 1980s to early 1990s search to redshift .1)

The Calán/Tololo Survey (Calán/Tololo Supernova Search) was a Survey from 1989 to 1999 at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory aiming at supernovae out to Redshift .1, to find Type Ia Supernovae in order to make a more precise estimate of the Hubble Constant. It was instrumental in establishing the acceleration that motivates the concept of Dark Energy.
