Bolton Hiller Searches for the Origins of the Universe

Toby Marriage, a professor of physics and astronomy at JHU, along with the rest of his research team, has designed and built a telescope that looks into deep space at what is known as the cosmic microwave background, the oldest light in the universe. The telescope, built on the Homewood campus, is now is on its way to the Atacama desert in Chile to be installed 17,000 feet above sea level. Once it’s installed early next year, Marriage and other researchers expect to learn more about how the universe began.
