Abstract: The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) is one of the main pillars of modern Cosmology. Soon after its discovery in 1965, it was recognized as evidence of cosmic evolution, and that our Universe went, at some time in the past, through a very hot phase where matter and radiation were in very intense interaction. Here, I briefly review the history of the CMB research, since its discovery until the very recent results, focusing on the implications for our understanding of cosmology. Finally, I outline some of the important results that are expected to come from CMB research in the next decade.
