Paper Abstract

The COsmic Background Explorer, (COBE), launched on November 18, 1989, made all-sky surveys in the millimeter, sub-millimeter, and infrared bands, with the goal of detecting and studying the Cosmic Infrared Background (CIB), and of making detailed studies of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). Since these backgrounds come to us from redshifts (Zeta) ranging from, a few to 103, corresponding to co-moving distances of (54 - 360) X 1024 meters, COBE is certainly doing the most remote of all the 'remote sensing' discussed in this session.
