Cosmological Mystery

The cosmic background microwave radiation of the Big Bang is, according to two recent studies, unexpectedly asymmetrical. And the plane of its symmetry aligns with the Earth’s rotation with the axis of our Solar System.

Which suggests that we have a ringside seat at the universe, which is a reversal of the position scientists have taken since Copernicus. Listen to this from Jack Lawrence, whose claim to know what he is talking about is that he has a masters degree in the Philosophy of Physics from Oxford University.

    I am fascinated by cosmic radiation. I am puzzled by your last statement. I am stressing my brain to figure it out.

    1. He says it better in the video, but basically before Copernicus man thought that the Earth was the centre of the universe. After Copernicus we thought that we were relegated to some minor position off to one side of the Galaxy and off to one side of the universe. But now it seems that perhaps we are at some special point in the universe.

  2. I love this. It’s the middle of the night so I’m not going to try to explain why, but I love it in the same way that I love how numbers sometimes do unexpected things. It just makes me happy.
