Cosmology Books and Links
Annotated list of books, articles, and websites from a popular course at Sonoma State University.
Cosmology made Simple
A brief, non-mathematical introduction to modern cosmology.
An "interactive book" focusing on the topics of astronomy, cosmology, and theoretical physics. It also provides a number of services including an index of all 88 constellations, several interactive games and quizzes, and extensive information on stars, galaxies, and the Big Bang.
Distant Galaxies and Cosmology Models
Article on possible cosmological models.
Galaxy Formation and the Intergalactic Medium
This site is dedicated to summarizing the research of Paul Shapiro's cosmology group. Of interest mainly to specialists.
Good Cosmology Sites
Links to cosmology resources, and a tutorial by a UCLA professor.
Great Debates in Astronomy
Following in the footsteps of the famous April 1920 'Great Debate' between Harlow Shapley and Heber Curtis, this series of debates among leaders in the astronomical community highlight major quests in astronomy and astrophysics in an open forum at the turn of the millennium.
Introduction to Cosmology
These notes form an introduction to cosmology with special emphasis on large scale structure, the cmb anisotropy and inflation. In some places a basic familiarity with particle physics is assumed, but otherwise no special knowledge is needed.
Introduction to Cosmology
A NASA site for the general public featuring a collection of questions and answers on cosmology.
Introduction to the Cosmic Microwave Background
Basic explanations of key concepts, including the Big Bang, expansion of the universe, and the ripples in the density of the early universe that led to the galaxies and stars we see today.
LAMBDA - Legacy Archive for Microwave Background Data
Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) archive of science research. CMB data is an important aspect of research in cosmology.
Primary aim is to test the hypothesis that a significant fraction of the dark matter in the halo of the Milky Way is made up of objects like brown dwarfs or planets: these objects have come to be known as MACHOs, for MAssive Compact Halo Objects.
MAP Home Page
MAP is a MIDEX class mission, selected by NASA in 1996, to probe conditions in the early universe. MAP measures temperature differences ("anisotropy") in the cosmic microwave background radiation.
Cosmologist's personal site including discussions of movies, experiments, and data analysis efforts.
Messier 81 Internal Motions
van Maanen's astrometrically determined internal motions of the spiral nebula Messier 81.
MSAM/TopHat High Altitude Scientific Balloons
A series of scientic experiments flying as balloon payloads in Texas and Antarctica, designed to measure the medium-scale anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR).
Mysteries of Deep Space - History of the Universe Timeline
From PBS Online
Ned Wright's Cosmology Tutorial
An illustrated introductory guide to the topic, attempting to summarize modern discoveries on the origin, current state, and future of our Universe.
NOVA - Runaway Universe
Examines the size, future and fate of the universe as well as the possible existence of others. Also explores what happens in a supernova explosion, a map of the universe on a cosmological scale, and the ability to spin a spiral galaxy on two axes using QuickTime VR.
The Origin of Elements
Arno Allan Penzias Nobel Lecture.
Phantom Energy and Cosmic Doomsday
Phantom energy, with negative sum of pressure and energy density, could lead to the universe tearing itself apart in a "Big Rip".
ESA mission designed to find the three cosmological parameters: the Hubble parameter, the density and the deceleration parameter from variations in the cosmic background radiation.
Astronomers are convinced that the expansion of the Universe accelerates.
Sloan Digital Sky Survey
A dedicated 2.5 meter telescope which uses sensitive electronic light detectors to systematically map a quarter of the sky, building a catalog of celestial objects, galaxies, and quasars.

The Big Bang (One More Time)
A new model of the universe says it repeats itself in an endless cycle. Article from Christian Science Monitor. (May 9, 2002)
Turning On the Universe
Astronomers say the Universe's expansion has been accelerating recently. A new model for repulsive 'dark energy' may help explain the acceleration in a more natural way than other models. From Physical Review Focus. (February 24, 2000)
Review of Mistake of Einstein
Cosmologists have used recent data to constrain the type of 'dark energy' that may fill all of space. (July 30, 1999)
