Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) and the EARLY UNIVERSE

The “first light” from the early universe is of paramount importance to modern physics. Dr. Basu Thakur will discuss how we see this “first light”, known as the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), and the multitude of science we have learned and will learn from detailed observations of the CMB. These range from the Big-Bang to a future beyond our own.
