Relatively Obscure: Our models of the early Universe depend on this stuff, and this new result may throw a monkey in the wrench for that.

Throw a monkey in the wrench?

Yup. If your wrench is covered with monkey bits as a result of someone trying to hurl one into it, you probably won't want to use that particular tool anymore.

urban.derelict: No, because you miss the entire premise of the big bang. Not only did matter not exist (in this universe) time also did not exist.

Little bit arrogant, but ok.

urban.derelict: /fan of superstring theory

Somewhat explains arrogance, ok.

urban.derelict: ///i thought the same thing as you

Conciliatory touch, nice.

urban.derelict: ///when i was 8 years old

Now you're just a dick.

RolandGunner: The LBT in Arizona has completed a long exposure image of area shown in the Hubble picture. Under that magnification it has been determined that the arc is actually just letters that read "Drink More Ovaltine"

That is slightly less racist than I expected, coming out of Arizona.

incendi: Sometimes I wonder if multiple bits of the universe big banged all at once, but the other banged bits are still outside the visible limits of our bits, and the unexplained accelerating expansion of our bit is caused by the gravitational pull of the other bits as they start to get closer or overlap around the edges. Maybe one day we'll all be blinded by the light of another big bang finally reaching us.

/this conjecture not supported by any significant knowledge or critical thinking on my part.

So what you are saying is that the big bang was really a gang bang?
