    • Abstract

       

      It has been a little over a year since WMAP produced its dramatic new glimpse of the cosmic microwave background. I review the results of the WMAP mission and the science that has arisen from it, focusing on the qualitatively new features of the data: the temperature-polarization correlation, correlations with large scale structure, the large-scale power deficit and its implications, and the search for non-Gaussianity.
