Several experiments have recently detected very low contrast, sub-horizon scale structures in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). In the current cosmological model, these structures result from acoustic oscillations of the primeval plasma at recombination ( $z \sim 1100$ ). In the framework of the Hot Big Bang theory with the inflation hypothesis, the statistical properties of the image of the CMB allow us to measure most of the cosmological parameters.
