BICEP1: A CMB polarimeter that observed from 2006 to 2008

The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) provides three strong but circumstantial pieces of evidence that the visible Universe was created by the superluminal inflation of a tiny volume of space:

  • Near isotropy of the horizon
  • Flatness of space
  • Phase-synchronicity of acoustic oscillations in the early universe
