I'm a freelance science writer. These days I write books that take too long to write. I'm co-owner of a blog: http://lastwordonnothing.com
How very interesting that is. Thank you.
Aww thanks Alex just what was needed.
She's just good.
Illywhacker is good and so are most all of his books. But I hadn't read the linked latest book so right there, Mr., I went out and ordered it.
Pretty sure you're right, hockeymom. This is FASCINATING.
Have a wonderful time, Carrie.
@Niko Bellic Well ok, you're exactly right. It's hard fitting nuances into a comment section. Not that we're nuances. But on the large scale, it's supposed to be isotropic and homogeneous and obey the laws of physics, and in that sense, perfect.
@Annie K. I forgot to add: that hotter-on-one-side part is called the Axis of Evil. For real.
Let me just fill you in at what they're hinting about but not telling you, so you know what you're really up against: the universe is hotter on one side than on the other, it's not doing what it's supposed to on the largest scales, and it has a giant cold spot. In short, it's not perfect. And the whole of universe-ology is based on it being perfect. We've been lied to.
