The purpose of the MAP mission is to determine the geometry, content, and evolution of the universe via a 13 arc-min full-width-half-max (FWHM) resolution full sky map of the temperature anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation with uncorrelated pixel noise, minimal systematic errors, multifrequency observations, and accurate calibration. These attributes were key factors in the success of NASA’s Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) mission, which made a 7Æ FWHM resolution full sky… Expand
