Description:

This fact card is about the significance of the pattern of microwave radiation that WMAP (Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe) has detected. The card uses the analogy of human fingerprints to show the ability to identify the right "suspect" from the pattern. Note: this resource was published prior to the mission name change from MAP to WMAP to honor Dr. Wilkinson.
