Cosmic microwave background anisotropy detected by the COBE DMR by George Smoot ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite has probed the early universe primarily through precise measurements of the of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation. George Smoot, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, presents results from the analysis of data collected by the COBE Differential Microwave Radiometers (COBE DMR). The CMB spectrum is well described as a 2.73K blackbody and in combination with other spectrum measurements reveal a great deal about the thermal history of the early universe. The COBE maps of the CMB anisotropy reveal evidence of the formation of structure in the universe, consistent with theories such as inflation and cold dark matter

The search for the embryo universe (George Smoot) ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Host Marcia Alvar speaks with George Smoot, astrophysicist, and author of Wrinkles in Time. They discuss Dr. Smoot's quest to discover the origins of the universe. The first step was to recognize and work with the four basic observations of the know universe: the universe has order; it is expanding; it is composed of common elements; and it has temperature. Building upon these tenants, scientists were able to create a very sensitive dish that received relic heat radiation that still exists from the earlier universe. Using this data they were able to construct a picture of the universe when it was only 3,000 years old
