In science:

The figure shows the four panels of all four CLUSTER spacecraft (with their somewhat childish names Rumba, Salsa, Samba, Tango).
Fundamentals of Non-relativistic Collisionless Shock Physics: IV. Quasi-Parallel Supercritical Shocks
We illustrate the method by estimating how well the proposed ESA COBRAS/SAMBA mission will be able to recover the CMB fluctuations against contaminating foregrounds.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
Throughout this paper, we will use the proposed European Space Agency COBRAS/SAMBA mission (Mandolesi et al. 1995) as an illustration of what the next generation of space-borne CMB experiments may be able to achieve.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
In Section 5, we use these estimates to assess the effectiveness of the subtraction technique and to show how accurately the CMB fluctuations could be recovered from high quality data, such as might be obtained from the proposed COBRAS/SAMBA satellite.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
We have estimated the power spectrum of Galactic dust from a large number of 12.5◦ × 12.5◦ fields of the 100 micron IRAS all-sky survey (Neugebauer et al. 1984), which have an angular resolution of two arcminutes (about twice as good as the best COBRAS/SAMBA channels).
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
The proposed COBRAS/SAMBA satellite mission (Mandolesi et al. 1995) is currently being evaluated by the European Space Agency, and if approved, is scheduled for launch in 2003.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
In this paper, we will assume that the COBRAS/SAMBA experiment will use this same degree of oversampling, in all channels.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
The resulting errors for the 143 GHz channel are given by the uppermost curve in the figure. A slight improvement would be the solid curve below it, which corresponds to choosing the single best COBRAS/SAMBA channel separately for each multipole.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
We conclude this Section with a few more technical results relating to the impact of COBRAS/SAMBA specifics on the reconstruction errors, the lowermost heavy curve in Figure 13.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
In Section 5, we assessed the effectiveness of the method using the specifications of the proposed COBRAS/SAMBA satellite mission and the abovementioned foreground modeling.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
As part of the scientific case for the COBRAS/SAMBA satellite, detailed simulations have been made where real foreground maps (extrapolated to the relevant frequencies using the data from IRAS, the Haslam map, etc.) were added to simulated CMB data.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
The total fluctuations of all foregrounds excluding (solid lines) and including (dashed lines) COBRAS/SAMBA pixel noise are plotted for the multipoles 10, 300 and 1000.
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
COBRAS/SAMBA channel at each multipole with no subtraction, (3) optimized subtraction on a pixel-by-pixel basis, and (4) the optimal subtraction technique.

They correspond to dust (top), free-free emission (lower left), synchrotron radiation (lower left, vertically shaded), radio point sources (lower right) and COBRAS/SAMBA instrumental noise and beam dilution (right).
A method for subtracting foregrounds from multi-frequency CMB sky maps
Moving to much higher redshifts, radio measurements of temperature fluctuations on the last scattering surface of the CMB by COBE and future experiments (COBRAS/SAMBA, MAP, VSA) reveal the seeds of cosmic structure.
