An explanation of the CMB Cold Spot may have been found and it could be caused by the biggest structure in the known universe.
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.
Cosmologists have carried out new analysis techniques on Planck's cosmic microwave background radiation data and found that some of the more mysterious features may be observational error. Continue reading →
The idea that there are an infinite number of universes beyond our own is assumed impossible to prove or disprove -- but a new computer model might give us hints as to what evidence to look for. 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 →
