First Year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) Observations: Foreground Emission
The WMAP mission has mapped the full sky to determine the geometry, content, and evolution of the universe. Full sky maps are made in five microwave frequency bands to separate the temperatureExpand

Morphology, near infrared luminosity, and mass of the galactic bulge from Cobe dirbe observations
Near-infrared images of the Galactic bulge at 1.25, 2.2, 3.5, and 4.9 microns obtained by the Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment (DIRBE) onboard the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satelliteExpand

The 1% Concordance Hubble Constant
The determination of the Hubble constant has been a central goal in observational astrophysics for nearly a hundred years. Extraordinary progress has occurred in recent years on two fronts: theExpand

A Three-dimensional Decomposition of the Infrared Emission from Dust in the Milky Way
We have constructed a three-dimensional model of the Galactic large-scale infrared emission from dust associated with the molecular neutral atomic (H I), and extended low-density cm~3) (H 2 ), (n e DExpand

The 1997 reference of diffuse night sky brightness
In the following we present material in tabular and graphical form, with the aim to allow the non-specialist to obtain a realistic estimate of the diffuse night sky brightness over a wide range ofExpand

COBE diffuse infrared background experiment observations of the galactic bulge
Low angular resolution maps of the Galactic bulge at 1.25, 2.2, 3.5, and 4.9 micrometers obtained by the Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment (DIRBE) onboard NASA's Cosmic Background ExplorerExpand

Quantifying discordance in the 2015 Planck CMB spectrum
We examine the internal consistency of the Planck 2015 cosmic microwave background (CMB) temperature anisotropy power spectrum. We show that tension exists between cosmological constant cold darkExpand

LARGE-SCALE CHARACTERISTICS OF INTERSTELLAR DUST FROM COBE DIRBE OBSERVATIONS
Observations from the COBE Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment of the 140 and 240 micrometer emissions from the Galatic plane region (absolute value of b less than 10 deg) are combined with radioExpand

Elucidating ΛCDM: Impact of Baryon Acoustic Oscillation Measurements on the Hubble Constant Discrepancy
We examine the impact of baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) scale measurements on the discrepancy between the value of the Hubble constant ($H_0$) inferred from the local distance ladder and fromExpand
