Frontier Fields in Two Minutes

Frontier Fields

The Frontier Fields project is an ambitious, multi-year cosmology research project using Hubble and many other telescopes. Describing the astronomy motivation, science concepts, planning, coordination, and execution is a long and daunting task. The Principal Investigator, Jennifer Lotz, recently gave a public-level presentation that was an hour long, with much of her discussion necessarily condensed.

Now, folks don’t always have that kind of time to spend learning about a new project. What about the short version: the so-called elevator pitch?

To address that need, we created a two-minute video overview of the Frontier Fields. We trimmed the astronomical story to its essentials, gathered and developed scientific visuals, and attempted to express it it all in just nine sentences.

The video below was part of our press release at the American Astronomical Society winter meeting in January 2014. It won’t make you a cosmology expert, but it will provide the essential…
