Wrinkles in time by George Smoot( Book )

27 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wrinkles in Time presents the hard science behind the structured violence of the big bang theory through breathtakingly clear, lucid images and meaningful comparisons. Scientists and nonscientists alike can follow with rapt attention the story of how, in a fiery creation, wrinkles formed in space ultimately to become stars, galaxies, and even greater delicate structures. Anyone can appreciate the implications of a universe whose end is written in its beginnings - whose course developed according to a kind of cosmic DNA, which guided the universe from simplicity and symmetry to ever-greater complexity and structure. As controversial as it may seem today, Wrinkles in Time reveals truths that, in an earlier century, would have doomed its proclaimers to the fiery stake. For four thousand years some people have accepted the Genesis account of cosmic origin; for most of this century, scientists debated two rival scientific explanations known as the steady state and big bang theories. And now, Wrinkles in Time tells what really happened

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
