Measuring CMB Anisotropies - WMAP Results and Planck Goals

Jim Cooney

I will review the three-year WMAP results, as summarized in Spergel et al (2007), in addition to discussing the science goals and expectations of the Planck satellite set to launch this summer. This will include a brief review of the origins and characterization of CMB anisotropies in addition to discussion of their implications for cosmology and large-scale structure.
