According ScienceRecorder.com, the researchers, who were working from almost previous six months with a special telescope, named as BICEP2 indicated the presence of faint pin-wheel shaped swirls in the serenity of the Big Bang, which symbolizes the sketches of gravitational waves rippling through the recently born cosmos. Certainly, if the theory detained, it will seems to be the straight proof of what cosmetologists term ‘Cosmic Inflation’, quite crucial innovation, though.
On the other hand, critics argued with the researchers that it’s just a signal given by galactic dust inside the Milky Way galaxy.
Recently, the new finding revealed by Planck’s spaceship of European Space Agency’s proposed that much, if not all, of the BICEP signal can be responsible for space dust. Moreover, the results have been published to the journal named as Astronomy & Astrophysics and went online on Monday.
The Planck collaboration, led by Jean-Loup Puget of the Institute Astrophysique Spatiale in Orsay, France stated, “We have shown that there are no clean windows in the sky, even in the faded-dust emanating areas.”
However, co-author Jonathan Aumont (Orsay institute) stated, which was published in “The New York Times”, recent findings does not completely oppose the BICEP innovation and did not compute at all a cosmological signal. He further stated that the BICEP and the Planck’s group have used the entirely different observation techniques and signals processing in two varied experiments. So, it would be difficult to find out, which signal comes out from dust and which one from gravitational waves.
Though, these two dissimilar results seem to be a good example of the scientific method in stroke. Starting with the Aristotle, which was eventually forgotten by the Western World till then rediscovered in the 12th and polished in the 17th century. The scientific process is a kind of query entirely based on logical, organized examination of natural phenomena and the formulation, testing and hypothesis modification. This is the way, how consistent advances in knowledge are made. It’s not an easy straight pathway, though the ‘jagged ‘one to walk on.
