The oldest light in the universe is the cosmic microwave background (CMB), which has been traveling through space for almost 14 billion years. Using one of the highest telescopes on Earth (the Atacama Cosmology Telescope), we can measure the CMB with unprecedented precision to help us understand the origin and evolution of the universe.
