John C. Mather, Senior Astrophysical and JWST Senior Project Scientist, NASA, Goddard Space Flight Center, states that the COBE (Cosmic Background Explorer) satellite launched in 1989 to observe the Big Bang and hunt for diffuse radiation from the era of galaxy formation, grew out of his thesis work with Paul Richards at Berkeley. It began the era of precision cosmology, with a 50 ppm comparison of the Cosmic Microwave Background to a blackbody, and detection of 10 ppm spatial fluctuations in the CMB. He describes the project, says who did what, and gives the key results. He outlines his current project, the James Webb Space Telescope, and illustrates its technical challenges with lessons learned from the COBE
