15:25 Critical Tests of Theory of the Early Universe using the Cosmic Microwave Background

The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) gives a photographic image of the Universe when it was still an „infant“. Its detailed measurements have given us a wealth of information such as the composition and history of the Universe. We are now using it to test our ideas about the origin of the Universe. I will review the physics of CMB and the key results from the recent experiments, and discuss future prospects on our quest to find the cosmic origins.
