Beyond the Quasars—Radio Cosmology

Abstract

When it comes to confronting the challenge that seems to fascinate us so profoundly, the origin of the universe, the imagination boggles for we have so little to hold onto. For the purposes of this chapter I will assume that the universe did have a beginning (the Big Bang), because to imagine that it did not is even more bizarre. The alternative, that it has lasted forever in some form, is something we cannot really comprehend. Just try! So we prefer to think of it as having had a moment of creation. And if it did, what experiment can we design in order to “see” back to the beginning of time?
