2) The anisotropy (variation from uniformity in different directions) in the CMBR
was found to be quite small, less than one part in 10,000.
Each time a CMBR
photon interacts with a hot electron, it gains some energy, distorting the CMBR
's spectrum in a characteristic way.
Their data at low redshift combined with the CMBR
acoustic scale have confirmed several basic tenets of cosmological structure formation theory.
The late David Wilkinson, of Princeton University, was a pioneer in CMBR
studies and a key member of the WMAP team.
PFT predicts that an object moving with equal velocity with respect to the isotropic CMBR
, in the direction (e.
And, among the pictures of his wife (also a cosmologist) and children, Tegmark includes additional animations of the effects of altering cosmological parameters and details about CMBR
experiments and data.
was a prediction of the work of George Gamow, Ralph Alpher, Hans Bethe and Robert Herman on the Big Bang nucleosynthesis [11,12], and was discovered later in 1964 by Penzias and Wilson.
It explains with remarkable clarity numerous key concepts, from the origins of the CMBR
and its ripples to the factors that motivated a Steady State alternative to the Big Bang.
Sunyaev and Zel'dovich predicted that hot electron gas in clusters scatters the CMBR
, creating spectral distortions.
It is another peculiar observation and the corresponding present CMBR
temperature is [T.
Essentially a relic of the Big Bang, the CMBR
is the oldest observable electromagnetic signal.
Against to this idea since 1992 from COBE satellite's CMBR
data reveals that cosmic temperature is practically constant at 2.
