Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey

(CANDELS)
(early universe survey by HST)

The Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey (CANDELS) is a survey in the near infrared of high-redshifted galaxies and Type Ia supernovae. It uses the HST's new WFC3 sensor for near infrared as well as its optical ACS camera. By gathering data on many early galaxies and supernovae, it will investigate the shape of space, i.e., degree of expansion as well as map the density variations.
