According to NASA, cosmology is “the scientific study of the large scale properties of the universe as a whole. It endeavors to use the scientific method to understand the origin, evolution and ultimate fate of the entire universe.”

He completed post-doctoral work at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the United Kingdom, Virginia Tech and the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois. Prosper joined Florida State University in 1993.
