Time Machine - the EBEX telescope measures the cosmic microwave background radiation will suspended from a high altitude balloon over 42,000 meters high. EBEX was launched on 29 December, 2012, near McMurdo Station in Antarctica. and will use the Polar vortex winds to circle around the South Pole, returning after two weeks. Tor has posted a first hand account of the Time Traveling Physicist Amber Miller:
A whole team of scientists and engineers designed and built the telescope EBEX, which takes pictures of light from when the universe was 380,000 years old. “It’s the closest you ever get to time travel. It’s okay for people to think of that,” says Miller, a professor of physics and Dean of Science for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Columbia University.
