Cosmic microwave background
The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is the thermal radiation left over from the "Big Bang" of cosmology. In older literature, the CMB is also variously known as cosmic microwave background radiatio...

Researchers say cosmic bruising may explain strange lights
PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Caltech cosmologist Ranga-Ram Chary thinks he may have found evidence of a parallel universe. In a new study, published in the Astrophysical Journal, Chary suggests ...
The Case For Spectral Distortions In The Cosmic Microwave Background
Half a century ago, astronomers got their first look at the infant universe: a haze of soft light that suffused the entire sky. This cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation seemed to indicate that...
Discovery of cosmic microwave background radiation
The accidental discovery of cosmic microwave background radiation is a major development in modern physical cosmology. Although predicted by earlier theories, it was first found accidentally by Arno P...

Polarization in astronomy
Polarization is an important phenomenon in astronomy. The polarization of starlight was first observed by the astronomers William Hiltner and John S. Hall in 1949. Subsequently, Jesse Greenstein and L...

Cosmic microwave background experiments
There have been a variety of experiments to measure the Cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation anisotropies and polarization since its first observation in 1964 by Penzias and Wilson. These inclu...
