Idea behind this logo concept
Dark energy is what is causing the universe to expand faster as it ages. So my idea for the logo was to have 2 celestial bodies with seemingly increasing disctance between the 2, as seen through a traditional telescope. My choice for the purple shades as brand colors is based on the mysterious and intruiging feelings they radiate.
Dark Energy Explorers is a Zooniverse project in partnership with NASA.
