The history of 20th century astronomy is inextricably linked to the Carnegie Observatories. From the revelation of the universe’s expansion to the discovery of dark energy, Carnegie Observatories scientists have transformed humankind’s understanding of the cosmos. The groundbreaking work continues today at our world-famous Las Campanas Observatory in Chile, home to the twin Magellan telescopes, and site of the future Giant Magellan Telescope. Carnegie scientists are still at the vanguard of research on galaxy formation and evolution, the chemical evolution of stars and planets, stellar variability, supernovae, and more.
