Excitement overflowed into hyperbole in the spring of 1992 as astronomers told reporters about early results from NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer
After analyzing data gathered by NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer
(COBE) satellite, two groups of researchers unveiled their infrared pictures Jan.
I prepared a list of a dozen venerable and obvious subjects and found that seven have no entry: Cosmic Background Explorer
(COBE), cosmological principle (but there is an entry for perfect cosmological principle), homogeneity, Mach's principle, Olbers's paradox, space-time, and the tired-light theory.
Hawking of the University of Cambridge in England has hailed the long-awaited discovery of those temperature fluctuations by the Cosmic Background Explorer
(COBE) as one of the most important discoveries of the 20th century (SN: 5/2/92, p.
Surveying the whole sky, NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer
(COBE) satellite detected minuscule differences in the temperature of the microwave background radiation, amounting to just 1 part in 100,000 of the average value, 2.
Mather of Goddard, plans for NGST had their roots in a satellite, the Cosmic Background Explorer
(COBE), that he helped design.
Last April the Cosmic Background Explorer
(COBE) satellite made headlines with its discovery of minuscule fluctuations in the temperature of the microwave glow that pervades the universe.
Two years after the Cosmic Background Explorer
(COBE) Satellite completed its 4-year survey of the microwave background, the faint radiation left over from the Big Bang, researchers have finally finished analyzing all the data.
Commentators disagree on the theological significance of what NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer
, or COBE, found.
Based on the first year of data collected by NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer
(COBE) satellite, this map showed tiny temperature fluctuations in the microwave background radiation believed left over from the explosive birth of the universe (SN: 5/2/92, p.
