WMAP high resolution cosmic background imagery

The Wilkinsin Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) has some spectacular new imagery of the cosmic background radiation. The cosmic background radiation is the leftover "glow" of energy from the big bang. The lighter colors represent hotter areas in the background of the visible universe.

There are a number of microwave bands that could be used (K, Ka, Q, V, W). Now I just need to find the time to reproject them and, the hard part, put in a selection interface. Things like this will be so much easier to add to version 3.

Thanks to ccablog for the find!

Wow.. that's so really interesting! I really want to listen to the results of your work. That's gonna be interesting. To hear not only music, but your voice too. Usually I like to see, like I watch my, but if there's no video, that's OK, if you have beautiful voice.

You need to see your monetary status according to a moneylender for example the Standard Bank home credit office. A bank will just consider a little piece of one's month to month pay once you apply for your home credit. car title loans
