February 2003. A powerful satellite has captured the best
picture ever taken of the infant universe, an image so
detailed that scientists said it answers some of the most
important questions about the cosmos, including when it
was born and how it will probably die.
- Technology Offers View of Early
- By Curt Suplee, Washington Post, Thursday
27 April 2000. Astronomers have obtained the first
detailed images of the universe as it was nearly 15

super-faint ripples that were the first seeds of the
structure of the cosmos.

ever conducted of the evolution of the largest cosmic
building blocks—galaxies. This is the first time
that the cosmic tale of how galaxies build themselves has
been traced reliably to such early time.
