Info on the supernova accelerating space Nobel prize.

    In this thread I would like you to add some more detailed information on what the people behind the new physics prize have actually found, what the interpretation is and where the relevant papers are.

    The redshifts of supernovaes of type 1a are redshifted in some peculiar way that is interpretated as the universe is expanding at an accelerated pace? From wikipedia and media I only seem able to gain some very superfiscial information...
