- COBE: satellite data analysis on the anisotropy and spectrum
of the cosmic microwave background and on infrared emission from
Galactic and extragalactic sources.
- MAX, MAXIMA and BOOMERANG: balloon-borne CMB anisotropy mapping
experiments and the new
instrument for CMB polarization observations
- Planck Surveyor : formerly called
is a satellite proposed to extend the
COBE DMR work.
It completed Phase A feasibility study in May 1996, and has been selected
for a mission by
ESA (European Space Agency) in July 1996.
- CMB Data Processing, Analysis and Computing :
is a major effort in collaboration with
utilizing the NERSC Supercomputer Center.
- CMB Foreground Estimation and Realistic Modeling including the
- GEM: the Galactic Emission Mapping project. A radio survey of
- Neutrino Astrophysics Projects designed to detect high energy
- designed to measure
cosmological parameters and do related astrophysics.
- Former Projects such as the U2 jet aircraft
borne experiment that detected the CMB dipole anisotropy
and this one to measure the long wavelength
spectrum of the cosmic microwave background. This was done at a
number of sites including the South Pole pictured there.
