From the anisotropic dipole of the CMB, they are able to calculate our velocity through space relative to this radiation. How exactly is this done - in general terms. What assumptions are they needing to make ab out this radiation to deduce our speed from it?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't understand the connection between observing the radiation and identifying our speed relative to it.

Thanks!
