Researchers have been utilizing the measurements of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) for the last several decades to study the birth and evolution of our Universe. I will review the science behind the CMB and describe how we extract cosmological parameters from CMB maps. I will conclude with the state of CMB measurements concentrating on the Atacama Cosmology Telescope.
