Topic011: The Cosmic Rest Frame, An Unobstructed View, Bill Tifft, 9/2/15
By early 1991 we had detected global quantization, recognized variability of redshift, and had a good model for cosmic corrections due to large scale curvature in time. We were ready to look deeper into space and time using large 21-cm redshift samples, our own and new data becoming available from studies being made at Arecibo. We had begun global work using the galactocentric rest frame, but as my colleague John Cocke kept reminding me, there was the more fundamental cosmic rest frame. To clearly connect with cosmology we needed to connect with and understand the relationship of our quantization studies to the new cosmic background radiation work revealed by the COBE project.
COBE provided a well determined dipole component for the cosmic background which provided us with the starting point for…
