Reports published last year claiming to have detected evidence of gravitational waves emitted immediately following the Big Bang were inaccurate, new analysis of the data has revealed.
An international team of physicists has measured a subtle characteristic in the polarization of the cosmic microwave background radiation that will allow them to map the large-scale structure of the universe, determine the masses of neutrinos and perhaps uncover some of the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy.
What do you get when you combine polarized radiation with Einstein's theory of general relativity? According to a group of astrophysicists at UC San Diego, you just might get more accurate estimates for the mass of ghostly subatomic particles known as neutrinos.
Astronomers publishing a paper in the journal Nature say they have found the first direct evidence that gravitational waves rippled through the early Universe during the inflation period.
