'[TECH]:: Inflation Deflated - The Big Bang's tough'

First foot :-).

This is an example of one fairly extreme end of what I
expect we may see in the new [TECH] tag. User opinion will
shape where the boundaries are at the [OT] end of the range
and Bob Blick & users will probably shape what we see at the
[EE] end. I'm all in favour of having [EE] doing justice to
Electrical Engineering with [TECH] accommodating anything
that fails the EE purity test.

Any ongoing deep and philosophical discussions that arise
from material such as this (hard to imagine :-) ) would
probably migrate to [OT].

"Inflation deflated? - The big bang's toughest test."

This is a full text transcript of an article in a recent New
Scientist magazine. I assume (possibly incorrectly) that
they are entitled to publish it here.

Summary:  Improving measurement accuracies of variations in
the cosmic microwave background information pose severe
challenges to the current best cosmological universe model.

_____________


While the "inflation" model of the big bang has been for 25
years been the best explanation of how what we see in the
universe came about (inflation posits expansion much faster
than current light-speed very soon after the bb to allow
"communication" of information that we now see that could
not be explained by the present laws of physics) it has had
no real experimental or measurement support and its
predictions matched reality only moderately.

This paper covers recent analyses by Benjamin Wandelt, a
cosmologist at the University of Illinois, that suggest that
measurements of variations in the cosmic microwave
background radiation very badly fail the predictions made by
the inflation model. This conclusion is liable to be firmed
up or falsified in the next few years as measurement
accuracies continue to improve.
