Episode Summary

EDIT
EBEX
AIRED:
Dean Amber Miller is leading the Columbia team?s E and B Experiment (EBEX), which consists of a 6,000-pound balloon-borne telescope that will be launched into the stratosphere over Antarctica to capture snapshots of the cosmic microwave background, or CMB?light emitted by the hot plasma leftover from the big bang that can still be observed today. Specifically, the telescopecaptures photons, or light particles, that were emitted when the universe was 380,000 years old. Much like a digital camera, the telescope takes photographs, but instead of capturing information in the form of optical light, EBEX ?is designed to look at microwaves,? said Miller. ;moreless
