Archeology of the Universe with the BOOMERanG Experiment — •Paolo de Bernardis — Rom
The Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropy experiment BOOMERanG has recently produced wide, uncontaminated images of the last scattering surface at redshift 1000. Here I describe the technical advances which made this possible, present the images and discuss the associated uncertainties. I also review the impact of these data and of those of other recent CMB experiments on the current theory of inflation and formation of structures in the Universe.
