Best ever map of the early universe revealed

Stephen Battersby – March 17th 2006 – link

On Thursday, the WMAP team revealed the best map ever drawn of microwaves from the early universe, showing variations in the brightness of radiation from primordial matter. The pattern of these variations fits the predictions of a physical theory called inflation, which suggests that during the first split second of existence the universe expanded incredibly fast

Amazing what we are capable of detecting, extrapolating and form theories and create hypothesises about.
