Detail Page

written by Edward Wright
This website contains a tutorial that goes through the basic principles of Cosmology. It begins by doing a historical review of the discoveries that led to the current theory of how Universe is. The following sections deal with the concepts of homogeneity and isotropy, measuring distances, effects of gravity, geometry of space, horizons and inflation, and finally how projects like COBE provide astronomers with evidence of the mass distribution in our Universe.
