Calán/Tololo Survey

(Calán/Tololo Supernova Search)
(late 1980s to early 1990s search to redshift 0.1)

The Calán/Tololo Survey (Calán/Tololo Supernova Search) was a survey from 1989 to 1995 at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory aiming at supernovae out to redshift 0.1, 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.
