Abstract

The BOOMERanG experiment is an international effort to measure the Cosmic Microwave Background(CMB) anisotropy at an angular resolution of 12÷20 arcmin, with unprecedented sensitivity, sky and spectral coverage. The telescope will be flown from Antarctica by NASA-NSBF with a long duration stratospheric balloon (7 - 14 days), and is presently scheduled for a test flight in 1996 and an Antarctic flight in 1997. The experiment is designed to measure the power spectrum of the CMB anisotropies up to l ≡ 700 and to produce an image of the CMB sky with high sensitivity and angular resolution. It will be an important precursor of future space-borne missions, producing crucial cosmological data and testing new technologies which are essential to the design of a CMB mapping satellite experiment.
