If you Googled: “how was our universe born” you will find about 23 million hits – many having some version of an unimaginably hot, dense point, the source of all the material used to make up our Universe consisting of about 100 to 500 million galaxies. [We find more galaxies with every new, improved telescope added to examine the night sky.]
This birth from a singleton is the most prevalent theory that spawned NASA’s WMAP satellite search now detailed as the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation [CMB] – a radiation supposedly coming from that singleton. The Planck satellite [the European Space Agency improved version of WMAP] confirmed WMAP’s findings with greater detail [NOTE: Exacerbating!] exacerbating variations in what was expected from a uniformly expanding sky. See next.
Planck satellite results (March 2013) Planck Satellite Confirms WMAP Findings: Universe is not Copernican “Most scientists brushed the observation off as a fluke of some type, and many theories were created to explain it away. Many awaited the Planck mission. The Planck satellite was looked upon as a referee for these unexpected (and unwelcome) results. The Planck satellite used different sensor technology, and an improved scanning pattern to map the CMB. In March 2013, Planck reported back, and in fact [NOTE: Verified!] verified the presence of the signal in even higher definition than before!”
However this CMB only adds to the singleton theory that has many problems. See also next entry
ScienceDaily article –
The black hole at the birth of the Universe:, August 7, 2014: “The problem, as the authors see it, is that the big bang hypothesis has our relatively comprehensible, uniform, and predictable universe arising from the physics-destroying insanity of a singularity. [But] It seems unlikely.”
Watch this space for more on that singleton.
