Physic Flex Your BICEP
Physic Flex Your BICEP The recent BICEP2 results seem to have caught a lot of media attention. News coverage ranges from NY Times to CNN, etc. And let’s face it, this isn’t easy to understand even if the news media coverage glosses over the physics on why this is such an important discovery.
To add to the body of “explanation” given out there, here’s Minute Physics version of it.
With all the euphoria surrounding this, Neil Turok voice his caution to all the brouhaha surrounding this result.
“If … … and this is a big … True, it will be wonderful evidence for what happened in Big Bang,” Turok told physics world When he agreed that at first glance, the BICEP2 observations are in place to maintain Infrastructure “as it was presented 30 years ago, where space time will pass through inflation and will ring like a bell” Nearly close differences between Planck and WMAP binoculars, new results and previous figures face immigrants. Indeed, the 0.20 tester’s scroll ratio is considered more important than the previous analysis of BICEP2 source data in the past. But the BICEP2 researchers said in their press conference yesterday that they believe certain tweaks could be made to an extension of the ACDM cosmological model that could make the two results agree.
As with ALL experimental observations and discovery, there has to be reproducibility, and agreement with other types of experiments that point to one single, consistent picture. This is what makes science different than other areas of human endeavor. We NEVER confirm something with just one single experiment or with just one single type of experiment. Superconductivity is confirmed with resistivity measurement and magnetic susceptibility measurement.
