Caption: Dark Energy Camera telescope simulator. The Dark Energy Camera is part of the Dark Energy Survey (DES) and has been fitted to the Victor M. Blanco Telescope located at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO) in Chile. It has been in use since September 2012, with the survey starting in August 2013. It is a combined optical/near-infrared survey that is used by cosmologists to probe the dynamics of the expansion of the universe and the growth of large scale structures such as galaxies in its early history. Photographed at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), Illinois, USA, on 17 November 2010.
