Creator: Haig, Douglas
Publisher: University College, London
Description: This website, authored by Douglas Haig of the University College-London, contains information for students unfamiliar with the cosmic microwave background. It first discusses the Big Bang, then it explains inflation, nucleosynthesis, the expansion of the universe, anisotropies, the fate of the universe, the CMB horizon, and current projects such as COBE. This is a nice overview of many different topics in the vast world of astronomy. The sections are fairly brief, but they offer solid visual representations of the topics discussed.
