'Echoes' of the Big Bang Misinterpreted ?
Analysis by Ray Villard

Seeing is believing, except when you don't believe what you see.

This is according to veteran radio astronomer Gerrit Verschuur, of the University of Memphis, who has an outrageously unorthodox theory that if true, would turn modern cosmology upside down.

He proposes that at least some of the fine structure seen in the all-sky plot of the universe's cosmic microwave background is really the imprint of our local interstellar neighborhood. It has nothing to do with how the universe looked 380,000 years after the Big Bang, but how nearby clouds of cold hydrogen looked a few hundred years ago.


The idea is so unbelievable that it's little wonder that cosmologists have largely ignored his work that has been published over the last few years.

"Science is supposed to be about the excitement of making new discoveries. But this discovery terrifies me," he told reporters at the recent meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Anchorage, Alaska.

Verschuur's radio maps of hydrogen surrounding our local stellar neighborhood out to a few hundred light-years appear to have an uncanny match-up to the mottled structure of the cosmic microwave background that is 13.7 billion light-years away.

NASA's Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) mapped the CMB in exquisite detail in 2003. The data show the slight temperature fluctuations in the early universe that are believed to be the seeds of galaxy formation. It is a landmark observation that is considered the "blueprint" for the subsequent evolution of the universe.

I have wondered the same thing for a couple years now.

I have always doubted that the "All Sky" image really picked up much more that our own galaxy's radiation emissions.

I mean, the images were taken within a bubble, inside a bubble, inside yet another bubble. (bubble = magnetic spheres Earth/Sun/Galaxy)

But, that's just my theory.
