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 →
Gravitational waves have been observed for the first time, providing direct evidence for quantum gravity. How does this prove the Big Bang actually happened? Trace and explain this groundbreaking finding.
