The BICEP2 gravitational wave announcement may have been premature, but the search has only just begun -- an interview with cosmologist Kendrick Smith.
Physicists have announced that last year's much-publicized 'discovery' of gravitational waves embedded in the 'echo' of the Big Bang was a misstep.
The likelihood that a South Pole-based telescope detected elusive gravitational waves earlier this year has just taken another nosedive. Continue reading →
The recent discovery of gravitational waves present in cosmic microwave background radiation -- posited as evidence of the big bang -- has been called into question by, of all things, dust that needs to be accounted for.
It's funny when two seemingly distant theories conspire to destroy the Universe. Continue reading →
Sometimes, a discovery is announced prematurely; that's the case here.
Rumors of interfering galactic dust messing with the potentially historic BICEP2 detection of gravitational waves have been shot down by project scientists. Continue reading →
Last month's BICEP2 discovery of gravitational waves is compelling evidence for the inflationary period just after the Big Bang. But what if there's another explanation? Continue reading →
