The Cosmic Microwave Background: Physics and History
Friday, October 4, 2019

The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is the heat left over from the hot Big Bang of the early universe. Careful studies of the CMB have greatly enriched our understanding of the history and properties of the universe—and what it was like very early on. In this talk, I will focus on the basic science of the CMB, and how this intertwined with the “discovery” of the CMB. I'll start with this proposition: the very early universe was dense, hot, and very, very simple.
