"There never was a good war, or a bad peace."
But how does it answer this question? How do we know that the universe started with a Big Bang?
Keep up to date with the Space calendar 2022: Rocket launches, sky events, missions and more!
No guarantee that nothing exists but if it does nothing could have had a negative energy in it's occupation of infinity.If the Big Bang di happen.
Where did it happen?
How old is the Universe?
What is the process from nothing to Now?
The thing to keep in mind with the Big Bang and the expansion of the universe is that it wasn’t an “explosion” like a detonation here on earth, with a definite center, and the universe spooling outwards into a pre-existing space.It's not possible to know where it happened as space is expanding in every direction from every place.
It's estimated to be around 13.7 billion years.
I don't really understand this question.
The Cosmology Large Angular Scale Surveyor (CLASS) observes the polarized cosmic microwave background (CMB) over the angular scales of 1∘≲θ≤ 90∘ with the aim of characterizing primordial gravitational waves and cosmic reionization. We report on the on-sky performance of the CLASS Q-band (40 GHz), W-band (90 GHz), and dichroic G-band (150/220 GHz) receivers that have been operational at the CLASS site in the Atacama desert since June 2016, May 2018, and September 2019, respectively. We show that the noise-equivalent power measured by the detectors matches the expected noise model based on on-sky optical loading and lab-measured detector parameters. Using Moon, Venus, and Jupiter observations, we obtain power-to-antenna-temperature calibrations and optical efficiencies for the telescopes. From the CMB survey data, we compute instantaneous array noise-equivalent-temperature sensitivities of 22, 19, 24, and 56 μKcmbs√ for the 40, 90, 150, and 220 GHz frequency bands, respectively. These noise temperatures refer to white noise amplitudes, which contribute to sky maps at all angular scales. Future papers will assess additional noise sources impacting larger angular scales.
