I'm not too much in knowing in this area but i find this discovery HUGE.I'm just passing the news.







Scientists say they have extraordinary new evidence to support a Big Bang Theory for the origin of the Universe.

Researchers believe they have found the signal left in the sky by the super-rapid expansion of space that must have occurred just fractions of a second after everything came into being.

It takes the form of a distinctive twist in the oldest light detectable with telescopes.




"This is spectacular," commented Prof Marc Kamionkowski, from Johns Hopkins University.
"I've seen the research; the arguments are persuasive, and the scientists involved are among the most careful and conservative people I know," he told BBC News.




The aim has been to try to find a residual marker for "inflation" - the idea that the cosmos experienced an exponential growth spurt in its first trillionth, of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second.




British scientist Dr Jo Dunkley, who has been searching through data from the European Planck space telescope for a B-mode signal, commented: "I can't tell you how exciting this is. Inflation sounds like a crazy idea, but everything that is important, everything we see today - the galaxies, the stars, the planets - was imprinted at that moment, in less than a trillionth of a second. If this is confirmed, it's huge."

This is crazy, how the fellow atsers explain this

Thanks for posting, but it looks like someone beat you to it with the same story from a different source...I'm sure this discovery is so big it's on many different sources:

Found: evidence of cosmic inflation: Proof of the big bang?

It helps to check the recent threads since search doesn't always work.

Ah, ok, mods should close the thread.

its just the other end of a block hole.......of countless black holes. Every time you enter one of them, the other end inside is another Universe, ad infinitum, like grapes on a grapevine, in a vineyard amongst other vineyards

None of this seems so exciting in the grand scheme

Que the Vatican come out and say, no no, you cannot go further than the Big Bang Theory....

So we can study the Big Bang, whether if it's true or not all we want, but we cannot study anything beyond the so called "Big Bang".

I'm pretty sure that the Vatican has no say in what research scientists are doing lol. They can say whatever they want, but the scientists wont listen...
