DOE’s 40 Years of Research: When the ‘Big Bang’ Became a Household Phrase

In this latest installment of the Department of Energy’s 40th anniversary celebration, the Office of Science commemorates astrophysicist George Smoot’s landmark 1992 paper, “Structure in the COBE Differential Microwave Radiometer First-Year Maps,” which presented a monumental discovery that won the 2006 Nobel Prize in physics and turned the Big Bang into a household phrase.

Every day leading up to Oct. 1, the Office of Science will post one new milestone paper here; you can also follow them on Twitter @doescience and #Energy40.
