View Resource The Physics of Microwave Background Anisotropies

Probing whether space is curved or flat, cosmologists have been searching for clues in ripples in the universe's microwave background left from the big bang. These tutorials, created by Professor Wayne Hu of the University of Chicago, explain the cosmic microwave background for neophytes, as well as more advanced readers.

View Resource The New Cosmology

This site offers new information pertaining to the Big Bang Theory. The new idea that they are proposing is that inflation took place at less than a tiny fraction of a second during which space underwent an enormous expansion. During the past 13 billion years, space has been expanding but at increasing rates, that is, the Universe is accelerating. Most of this expansion is driven not by the mass...

View Resource Violence in the Cosmos

This site, authored by Mike Guidry of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, deals with the beginning of the universe and how it formed. This site discusses the big bang theory which includes ideas such as the expansion of the universe, CMB, and matter in the universe. It also touches on how stars and galaxies form.

View Resource Cambridge Cosmology

This site, created at the University of Cambridge, is meant for the introductory astronomy student who is seeking to understand cosmology issues. There is extensive information on the Big Bang theory, galaxies and clusters, relic radiation, cosmic strings et al, and inflation. There are several helpful movies and animations disperses throughout the website.

View Resource Particle Soup: Nucleosynthesis

This lab activity provided by the University of Washington's Astronomy Department, gives an introduction to Big Bang Nucleosynthesis. This lab helps students understand why helium abundance in our universe provides crucial evidence for the Big Bang Model of the universe. The exercise provides a summary, background and theory, procedures, charts and diagrams and even a worksheet.
