decades of fun

Gravitons, Waves, and Cosmic Microwave Background Oh My!

Big news from the physics world that I can’t possibly explain accurately, but here goes anyway.

Someone discovered a trace of a magnetic signal that is believed to come from the origin of the universe, a signal created shortly after the Big Bang.

This supposedly supports both the theory of rapid universe expansion (“inflation”) and  the concept of gravitational particles referred to as “gravitons”, that we have yet to detect but theorize exist in some form.

This is fun stuff, a good science read over at Wired. It’s the continuation of experiments and theories of Einstein and Hubble that were started over 60 years ago.


Those guys weren’t deterred by ignorant facebook posters mocking everything they did ;-).
