Dark energy and dark matter are not just the tales of exciting blockbuster movies – they are mysterious, ominous forces that can shape and destroy planets or build cosmic empires. Unlocking the mysteries of the universe requires a keen eye and WFIRST (the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope) will take the legacy left by the great Hubble Telescope and amplify its effects tremendously. Join us as we explore the mysteries of our own galaxy and that of our interstellar neighbors through the eyes of the most powerful telescope on Earth: WFIRST.
