Low-l Anomalies of the Microwave Sky
microwave background radiation allows us to probe the
largest scales of the Universe at very high precision.
Fundamental to modern cosmology is the cosmological
principle, which is consequence of the inflationary
hypothesis. Testing the statistical isotropy of the
foreground-cleaned microwave sky at the largest angular
scales reveales unexpected correlations of the microwave
radiation with the motion and orientation of the solar
system. I dicuss the evidence and consequences.
