3D plaid is the newest glimpse


This week, I have a visit from Thomas Hertog from Belgium. We are working on a new theory of the origin of the universe. It predicts there are gravitational waves from the Big Bang pervading all of space. These may already have been observed by the BICEP team with a radio telescope at the South Pole. However their signal might be caused by dust. If the observation is confirmed, it will open a new window on the universe and will be even more significant than the discovery of the Higgs boson. -SH
