The objective of this research is to establish a better understanding of the current work available in the field of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB).

Our thesis is that, while the current state of research has created a base for the understanding of the CMB, more work is necessary through the use of computer science methods to expand upon the field. Our method of study is a literature review.

Our preliminary work suggests that NASA holds a wealth of information on this topic and has made it freely available to the public. Through our partnership with the OneOklahomaCyberinfrastructure Initiative (OneOCII), we have access to the network and computing power to reproduce some of the analysis and then expand on the current body of work.
