" The Creation and History of the Universe "

Professor George SmootProfessor George Smoot

Story : Using our most advanced techniques and instruments we sift through relic clues and evidence to understand the events surrounding the birth and subsequent development of the Universe. A precision inspection and investigation of the Cosmic Scene along with careful analysis, discussion, and computer modeling have allowed us determine what happened over billions of years with amazing certainty and accuracy.
Some of our findings are surprising and even provide shocking twists of plot. There remain even additional mysteries to be solved. In spite of that we can tell the tale of the creation and history of the Universe show key supporting evidence some of it from very early times including using the cosmic background light to provide a direct image of the embryo universe.
