In case you missed it scientists have discovered evidence for the rapid expansion of the universe 10 to the minus 35 seconds (roughly one trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second) after the Big Bang. A discovery that again confirms the Big Bang Theory as the origin of the universe as first proposed by Belgian Priest and physicist Fr Georges Lemaitre almost 90 years ago.
“Astronomers have discovered what they believe is the first direct evidence of the astonishing expansion of the universe in the instant following the Big Bang — the scientific explanation for the birth of the universe some 13.8 billion years ago.”
Scientists have also observed for the first time gravity waves in the cosmic microwave background radiation. The existence of Gravity waves predicted by Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity.
Its fitting that both men are to be congratulated today for their contributions to 20th century science.
I just love real science…
