The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
The WMAP mission reveals the conditions of the early universe by measuring the comic microwave background radiation in the sky. Using the temperature difference that is measured in a procedure called anisotropy, the WMAP project tells us about the structure of the universe. This site contains information about the WMAP project, its goals, and technical papers on the topic.
