Submission + - Cosmic Expansion Marker Find Hailed 1

Rambo Tribble writes: Evidence for the Big Bang has received a remarkable boost from the apparent finding of the B-mode polarisation of the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation. This event traces the origins of the universe's expansion back to "... first trillionth, of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second," of its existence. From the BBC article: "'Detecting this signal is one of the most important goals in cosmology today. A lot of work by a lot of people has led up to this point,' said Prof John Kovac of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and a leader of the BICEP2 collaboration."

Already there is talk of a Nobel for this research.
