Abstract:
BOOMERanG (Balloon Observations Of Millimetric Extragalactic Radiation and Geophysics) is a "new generation" Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB)Anisotropy experiment. We shortly describe the rationale of the experiment, the main features of the instrument and the technology breakthroughs which made its development possible and present a map of the CMB obtained from the long duration flight of the instrument.
