Zahn et al., "A measurement of secondary cosmic microwave background anisotropies with two years of South Pole Telescope observations," The Astrophysical Journal, vol.755,no.1,2012.
Instruments suspended beneath the balloon made close to one billion measurements of the tiny variations in the temperature of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) across a wide swath of the sky.
Today, telescopes like Planck can observe this fossil light across the entire sky as the Cosmic Microwave Background, or CMB.
Scientists on the Planck team, on the other hand, analyzed the cosmic microwave background, using variations in its temperature and polarization to calculate how fast the universe was expanding shortly after the Big Bang.
In the background, the mottled yellow features are relic radiation, called the Cosmic Microwave Background, which contains information about the earliest stages of the universe
Undaunted, theoretical physicists explore possible links between the field of inquiry and the fundamental theory, from the perspectives of string inflation from branes and moduli, cosmic superstrings, the cosmic microwave background as a possible probe of string theory, string gas cosmology, gauge-gravity duality, and heterotic M-theory and cosmology.
The instruments are set to investigate, with the highest precision ever, the cosmic microwave background (CMB) - the remnants of the radiation that filled the universe immediately after the Big Bang some 14 billion years ago.
Theorists in the 1960s said seeds of galaxies could be seen as ripples in the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation from the Big Bang.
WMAP, an orbiting satellite, took the most detailed picture ever of the cosmic microwave background -radiation left over from the birth of the universe.
This is due in part to the scarcity of events that can accelerate particles to such enormous energies, and partly because these particles lose energy when they collide with the ever-present cosmic microwave background radiation.
Painstaking measurements of the cosmic microwave background - the omnipresent radiation that is the afterglow of the Big Bang - tells us that a sixth of all matter in our galaxy is ordinary, while the rest is dark matter.
