Resum

With the launch of the BOOMERANG and MAXIMA balloon-borne experiments we have entered the era of "Precision Cosmology". No longer do we ask what is the nature of our Universe. We now ask detailed questions about its age, its material content and the way in which galaxies and clusters of galaxies formed. This talk is a didactic presentation of the understanding gained from these recent experiments and a look into the future of "Precision Cosmology".
