Abstract

Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson won the 1978 Noble Prize in Physics because of the noise in their experiment. While using the large communications antenna owned by Bell Laboratories, these two astronomers were frustrated by the presence of "a persistent background noise [ ... ] that made any experimental work impossible. The noise was unrelenting and unfocused [and] came from every point in the sky." They spent a year trying to eliminate this noise, but without success. When they turned to Rebert Dickie at Princeton for help, he explained that they were, in fact, recording the cosmic radiation left over from the Big Bang.
