In the subsequent section, we also discuss plausible extension of this unified statistics to include anisotropic effect by using quaternion oscillator, which may be observed in the context of Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation. Further observation is of course recommended in order to refute or verify this proposition.
It has long been predicted that inflation, if it occurred, would have left marks on the cosmic microwave background radiation, the flash of radiation released into space about 380,000 years after the Big Bang, when the universe had cooled down enough for light to travel freely.
Measurements of the residual heat from the Big Bang-the so-called Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation or CMBR emitted 13,700 million years ago-allow astronomers to determine the motion of the Local Group, the cluster of galaxies that includes the Milky Way, the galaxy we live in.
The putative sources are near enough, in cosmic terms, that many of the particles should be able to make it here without being destroyed by interacting with photons of the cosmic microwave background radiation.
Proposed in 1972 by Russian physicists Rashid Sunyaev and Yakov Zel'dovich, the kSZ effect results when the hot gas in galaxy clusters distorts the cosmic microwave background radiation - which is the glow of the heat left over from the Big Bang - that fills our universe.
COBE--the Cosmic Background Explorer--is launched, designed to measure the cosmic microwave background radiation.
We learn about measurements of the cosmic microwave background radiation made with balloon experiments, and about a modified theory of Newtonian physics that claims objects feel forces differently in regimes of extremely low acceleration.
The team, led by Chilean and Rutgers astronomers, found El Gordo by detecting a distortion of the cosmic microwave background radiation. This faint glow is the remnant of the first light from the Big Bang, the extremely hot and dense origin of the Universe about 13.7 billion years ago.
Their test relies on the cosmic microwave background radiation that bathes all parts of the universe.
The discovery and measurement of this cosmic microwave background radiation was one of the most important advances of 20th-century astronomy.
