# Viper telescope

The Viper telescope is being used to image the anisotropy seen in the universe. Inflation theory states the glowing clouds of gas in the sky would be in the form of an arc about ${\displaystyle 1/2}$ degree in the sky. The Viper telescope was able to confirm inflation theory, clearly showing the length of the arc was ${\displaystyle 1/2}$ a degree. Recently the telescope was able to detect tiny fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background radiation. This can give astronomers vast information about the distribution of matter in the proto-Universe, such as how galaxies, stars, planets, and quasars formed from the free-floating protons and electrons that made up the primordial soup.
