(Equation of State: Supernovae trace Cosmic Expansion)
(survey using supernova data to study dark energy)

ESSENCE (for Equation of State: Supernovae trace Cosmic Expansion) is a project to carry out Type Ia Supernova observations and draw conclusions about Dark Energy. The search for supernovae was carried out on the Víctor M. Blanco Telescope, with follow-up observations with Spectrographs. Observations were carried out 2002-2007.
