Project description

Subject: Physics.

Subtitle: Probing early universe cosmologies through measurements of cosmic microwave background polarization with SPIDER and the Simons Observatory.

The afterglow of the hot big bang, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), illuminates a number of key processes in the history of our universe. Together with other astrophysical observables, characterization of the CMB has lead to the development of an extraordinarily simple cosmological framework. However, various challenges and unanswered questions persist.
