Abstract

The main objective of the OLIMPO project, a large stratospheric telescope, is the measurement of the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect in many clusters of galaxies during a long-duration balloon flight. We describe the OLIMPO experiment, and outline the scientific rationale of balloon-borne measurements of the effect.
