radiation was first predicted by George Gamow in 1948 and by Ralph Alpher and Robert Herman in 1950 It was first observed inadvertently in 1965 by Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson at the Bell Telephone Laboratories in Murray Hill New Jersey The radiation was acting as a source of excess noise in a radio receiver they were building Coincidentally researchers at nearby Princeton University led by Robert Dicke and including Dave Wilkinson of the WMAP science team were devising an experiment to find the CMB When they heard about the Bell Labs result they immediately realized that the CMB had been found The result was a pair of papers in the Physical Review one by Penzias and Wilson detailing the observations and one by Dicke Peebles Roll and Wilkinson giving the cosmological interpretation Penzias and Wilson shared the 1978 Nobel prize in physics for their discovery Today the CMB radiation is very cold only 2725o above absolute zero thus this radiation shines primarily in the microwave portion of the electromagnetic spectrum and is invisible to the naked eye However it fills the universe and can be detected everywhere we look In fact if we could see microwaves the entire sky would glow with a brightness that was astonishingly uniform in every direction The picture at left shows a false color depiction of the temperature brightness of the CMB over the full sky projected onto an oval similar to a map of the Earth The temperature is uniform to better than one part in a thousand This uniformity is one compelling reason to interpret the radiation as remnant heat from the Big Bang it would be very difficult to imagine a local source of radiation that was this uniform In fact many scientists have tried to devise alternative explanations for the source of this radiation but none have succeeded Isnmqu IF THE EDEMIE MICRDWAVE BACKERDIJNI iT eJSTraighT line conTinuously in a sTraighT line 39 circle wiTh any cenTr e and radius or equal To each oTher e

metric is encapsulated in the equation Zci 2 sin2 9 d 2 The evolution of the Universe is governed by the scalefactor Rl the term in square brackets is the square of the distance 0 12 and the physical distance between two points is just Rd At the moment R is increasing with time which is another way of saying that the Universe is expanding The geometry of space at a given time is de ned by the

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Allison Fischer University of Alabama

"I signed up to be an Elite Notetaker with 2 of my sorority sisters this semester. We just posted our notes weekly and were each making over $600 per month. I LOVE StudySoup!"

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
