Dr. Alexander Kashlinsky is a principal investigator on several NASA and NSF grants studying topics related to cosmological bulk flows, cosmic microwave and infrared background radiation, and early stellar populations. Using the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, Kashlinsky recently discovered a phenomenon called “dark flow,” which are clusters of galaxies moving at a constant velocity toward a 20-degree patch of sky between the constellations of Centaurus and Vella.
