WMAP Three Year Results

March 19, 2006

Starting off:

So we had the privilege of having Cornell’s own Rachel Bean, of the WMAP science team, give a special physics colloquium an hour and a half after the release of the WMAP three year results on Thursday. The results, with exquisite precision, agree with the boring old cold dark matter + dark energy model of the universe’s evolution, with a dark energy equation of state that still looks depressingly like a cosmological constant. Sean Carroll discusses the results further.
