BOOMERANG (Balloon Observations Of Millimetric Extragalactic Radiation ANd Geophysics)
is an instrument designed to measure anisotropies in the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation.   We recently completed a successful "Long Duration" flight around Antarctica.  We launched the payload on Tuesday, December 29 (03:30 GMT), and it came back to earth on Friday, Jan 8, about 15:50 GMT - roughly a 10.5 day flight!  We acquired an enormous amount of CMB data;  it will take us many months to properly analyze it and report the science results, but we're very happy with the instrument performance.
