Searching for our Cosmic Origins

The Simons Observatory (SO) is a ground-based cosmic microwave background (CMB) experiment situated on Cerrro Toco, 5300 m (17,000 feet) above the Atacama Desert in Chile. It will make precise and detailed observations of the CMB, the heat left over from the hot, early days of the history of the Universe. 

Join the scientists, engineers and scholars who will provide breakthrough discoveries in fundamental physics, cosmology and astrophysics!
