Cosmic Background Radiation

Scientists discovered that there are microwaves coming from every direction in space: this is called the cosmic microwave background radiation, or CMBR for short.

The CMBR comes from radiation created at the beginning of the universe. The Big Bang theory is the only theory at the moment that can explain the presence of the CMBR.
