Observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB): history and perspective.
De Bernardis P.
I review the history the measurements of CMB spectrum, anisotropy and polarization. We focus on methods and observations, describing a few key experiments and results, and their impact on Cosmology and Fundamental Physics. We conclude with review of forthcoming experiments and scientific targets, showing that the discovery potential of this observable is still very important.
