16 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1990 and 1992, a NASA-led team of scientists from the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) project changed the way we view the universe. They showed that microwave radiation that fills the universe has an exquisite perfection that proves it came from the Big Bang itself. Even more spectacularly, they found tiny variations in its brightness that come from quantum sound waves in that great explosion, primordial seeds that would nucleate the growth of galaxies and make our

From the big bang to COBE, the Nobel Prize, and James Webb Space Telescope by John C Mather ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
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
