    Yet you will have me belive with the billions of miles/years and variables between us and then evidence perceived from an infant race in space would be able to tell how the universe was made. Space is cold....unless you are near the sun. Seriously we LIVE ON EARTH and haven't even mapped 100% of the oceans floor except though sonar which has been proven to not be 100% effective. But sure that star that's 5 light years away is made up of hydrogen. We know because its a lil blue. GTFO of here.


    No one is doubting we have a common ancestor. They just don't know how we came to evolve how we have. As far as I know the their are a few transitional fossils is still missing. Its all fun and games until the link is found......(Which I fully believe is valid)


    This isn't NCIS bro. This is the origin of EVERYTHING.

    Research spectrographs.

    Fossils are a rare thing. We're lucky to find any at all. In short, it is entirely expected that these "transitional fossils" will never be found. By studying DNA, we already know what those "transitional fossils" likely looked like. As DNA mapping progresses, we'll eventually be able to image every change in the genetic code from our common ancestor with apes to a modern man.

    The process is the same. Study the facts, attempt to explain them, perform experiments, study the results, and try again if it doesn't match.

    It's Polarbear's turn to mess with the oldest light in the Universe:

    Let's hope it's not galactic dust

    If you wonder what is E and B-mode polarization it's eh .. in a nutshell:

    After the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago, the universe was so hot and dense that light bounced endlessly from one particle to another, scattering from and ionizing any atoms that formed. Only when the universe was 380000 years old was it sufficiently cool to allow an electron and a proton to form a stable hydrogen atom without being immediately broken apart. Suddenly, all the photons were set free.

    The photons bounced off the electrons, they touched the last electron and then they went for 14 billion years until they got to telescopes on the ground. That's E-mode. B-mode polarization contains more information because photons carry this only if matter around the last point of scattering was unevenly distributed. This happens when light passes through the gravitational fields of massive objects, such as clusters of galaxies.

    *looks at dramatic thread title* They flopped ... but it's a question of science, there are ups and downs lol. Apparently they'll need more sophisticated and sensitive equipment. Maybe in 10-20 years things will change. Maybe sooner ... I hope

    This image from the European Space Agency's Planck satellite shows the space observatory's view of the same region observed by the Antarctica-based BICEP2 project. The Planck data suggests that light patterns that confirmed cosmic inflation theory were actually caused by space dust.

    "Unfortunately, we have not been able to confirm that the signal is an imprint of cosmic inflation," Jean-Loup Puget, principal investigator of the HFI instrument on Planck.

    All-sky maps of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) from the Planck satellite give a better idea of how interstellar dust conflicts with the CMB. The results suggest that a signal seen by the BICEP2 collaboration, purported to be evidence of inflation in the early universe, was largely contaminated by dust.

    Gazillions alternatives. M-theory, superstrings (sounds sexy lol), brane cosmology, holographic principle .... Duh maybe we don't even exist and always were dead

    I read the word Gazillions and my head went.................... BOOM.

    Come on Drone.......which one are you betting on......................and yes, i've got all day. (sorry mods)

    I'm not really into cosmic inflation, it's way too dull. So I choose brane theory. I don't think they can prove it anytime soon but I like it anyway,

    Oh no , not more bloody reading.
    .................................................................................walks off, looking at the floor, taking small steps, looking increasingly disshevelled, starts crying.




    Bet you a fiver its Cosmic Inflation...

    i am literally just about getting a grip on cosmic inflation in my own little way, and i thought that was it.


    So glad i found this thread and the other similar ones.

    Cosmic Inflation is real it is happenning right now inside my cranial cavity.

    Sorry, this is an interesting thread and i will not be tangented. I have already been warned.

    Oh, and can i correct the spelling mistake first please.



    More please Drone.
