User:Søren Bertil F. Dorch/Proposed/Supernovae as distance indicators
Dr. Robert P. Kirshner accepted the invitation on 7 October 2007 (self-imposed deadline: 7 January 2008).
This article will briefly cover: Type Ia supernovae as standard candles, including methods for using light curve shapes to improve their precision. Prospects for IR observations of SN Ia for even more reliable distances. Use of SN II as fundamental distance indicators that require no other astronomically determined distance.
