Abstract

The photon is the best probe we have of the distant regions of the universe. There are two regions in the electromagnetic spectrum where one can expect to see far back into the universe. In both of these windows there are backgrounds which are now being explored and studied. These observations have led to suprisingly strong statements about the nature of our universe.
