Commissioner Gordon only lights the Big Bang Signal when there's a major crime.

I'm just waiting for all the religious morons to not read (or understand) the article, and then pile in here insisting that this, clearly, is yet another example of how science has failed and creationism has succeeded.

I like how as you read it you can go from "The Big Bang may be a lie! Science is unsure yet again!" to "There may be dust in the way so somebody else should try this again."

"Rival groups have picked holes in the team's methods and analysis."

Probably those upstart Tricep3's. They are wanting to expand their turf.

Can I get me some tax payer money to study the origin of the universe here?

Well done...

So if both science and religion are wrong then who has all the answers?

They already nipped those cretins in the bud:

We don't believe things because somebody says they're true; we believe them because different people make the measurements independently and find the same results.

the criticism since has been sharp.
Rival groups have picked holes in the team's methods and analysis.



Deniers...

I'm not a physicist, so correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the cosmic background radiation was formed well after the big bang when the universe was finally cool enough for all that electromagnetic radiation (albeit at a much higher frequency than it is today) to pass through relatively undisturbed. Before that time the photons were still being reabsorbed by matter before they could get very far. So saying this radiation goes back to the big bang is a bit of a misconception. However, the isotropic nature (or very nearly isotropic nature) can be used to infer many details about the big bang.

So we need more money to confirm...

I can, if I can model it as a spherical universe in a frictionless vacuum...

You're not really wrong, that's just not what TFA is about.

I always see posts like this but I never actually see the religious nuts come into the thread.

Am I wrong? Bevets left along time ago.

I used to think gravity waves were impossible to ever discover inside our universe. That they could only really be seen from the outside.

I'm reconsidering this. We need to figure out how to reflect them and observe at an angle. Or maybe refract them.
 
2014-06-20 11:11:21 PM  
I always thought that gravity would crush mass down past the point of being matter and instantly convert it to energy, which would then suddenly release it in a big bang.  Not the Big Bang, but several big bangs that go on and on and on.

It still occurs, just not as often (and, yeah, a Bevets post is about as rare as a chicken tooth these days.)
