This fundamental difference shows that while the optical and submillimeter portions of the cosmic background radiation are about equally strong, the latter is produced by much rarer objects.
If the Milky Way and other galaxies are streaming across the heavens, they move relative to the cosmic background radiation, researchers have assumed.
According to Lahav, the fluctuations in the cosmic background radiation yield a very good fit with the observed large-scale structure if the universe has a total mass density of 30 percent of the critical density and if galaxies are distributed in the same way as dark matter.
For example, the spectrum of the 3[degrees] Kelvin cosmic background radiation that pops up in every modern astronomy book represents more than the waning echoes of the Big Bang.
These findings increase the difficulty of reconciling the extraordinary smoothness of the cosmic background radiation -- heat left over from the creation of the universe -- with the lumpiness of matter as it now appears in the form of galaxies (see adjacent story).
The satellite, built at the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, will continue the work of the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite in studying the 3[degrees] Kelvin cosmic background radiation left over from the Big Bang.
If it finds the brightness of the cosmic background radiation patchy rather than smooth, scientists will face the task of identifying as yet-unknown "seeds" around which formed galaxies, galactic clusters, and clusters of galactic clusters.
data on the cosmic background radiation (see the July issue, page 24).
The fundamental papers include Edwin Hubble's study of "spiral nebulae," Grote Reber's pioneering foray into radio astronomy, Fred Hoyle's explanation of nucleosynthesis inside stars, George Abell's study of galaxy clusters, Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson's discovery of the cosmic background radiation, and Roger Ulrich's presentation on helioseismology.
Planck will survey subtle irregularities in the cosmic background radiation left over from the Big Bang and thus provide a definitive test of galaxy-formation theories.
Because Smoot received enormous publicity in the wake of COBE's discovery of structure in the microwave cosmic background radiation, it is easy to see how this mistake was made.
