In Cosmic Microwave Background, scientists are using a telescope at the South Pole to investigate what the Universe was like right after the Big Bang and how it’s changed since.

This feature can be used to illustrate the process of science. It shows scientists collecting data about the earliest light in the Universe. They use this evidence to answer questions they have about the inflation that happened right after the Big Bang and how the Universe has evolved since then. (Read more about The Scientific Process.)

This Classroom Discussion Activity can be used to connect your students to the process of science, highlight overarching scientific themes, and enhance comprehension of the story.
