- designs and builds new instrumentation for observational cosmology
- deploys and operates its instruments wherever the observing conditions are best - from the geographic South Pole to the top of the Stratosphere
- analyzes and interprets the data from these experiments to gain a better understanding of the origin, fate, and fundamental constituents of the Universe.
Simply stated, our mission is to make measurements that will help us better understand what the universe is made of, how it came to be, and how it will evolve.
