Abstract: The nature of dark energy is of such fundamental importance—yet such a mystery—that a dedicated dark energy experiment should be as comprehensive and powerfully incisive as possible. The Supernova/Acceleration Probe robustly controls for a wide variety of systematic uncertainties, employing the Type Ia supernova distance method, with high signal-to-noise light curves and spectra over the full redshift range from z = 0.1 – 1.7, and the weak gravitational lensing method with an accurate and stable point spread function.
