BICEP2 MEASUREMENTS REAFFIRMED

There is an interview with Bicep2 team leader John Kovac of Harvard University published today. In it Kovac reaffirms his discovery, subject to the resolution of the foreground/background issue:

“Our BICEP2 telescope clearly detected a B-mode pattern of polarisation on the sky, matching what would be expected from inflationary gravitational waves.”

The following language confirms that the Planck scientists accept that the Bicep2 sky measurements are valid (on equal footing with the Planck measurements), but that the discovery is subject to resolution of the foreground/background issue (the dust issue):

“Fortunately we have now agreed to directly collaborate with the Planck team on a joint analysis which will combine our ultra-deep BICEP2 maps with their Planck maps at a wide range of frequencies to assess galactic emission, and we hope this will produce results that will reduce the uncertainties very soon.”

[The reader should remain mindful that the above analysis will require the observed CMB spectrum. The currently accepted blackbody spectrum is fraudulent, and the actual spectrum – though known – has never been released. So clearly some BICEP2-Planck collaborative hanky-panky is going on here, and will be going on when they deal with the new data. The taxpaying public is being royally screwed because nobody is ever telling them the truth. Neither BICEP2 nor Planck is deserving of public trust in this proposed collaboration. The fact of the matter is that this “collaboration” is meaningless and deceptive: It is like pooling together of investors’ funds between Warren Buffett and Bernie Madoff in an attempt to rescue the latter.]

Kovac’s concluding sentence makes the BICEP2 discovery entirely contingent on the Planck sky measurements, thus subliminally removing from the public mind any other BICEP2 issues:

“Nothing beats new data to settle a debate, and that’s the great thing about science.”

[Indeed! When Planck had new data disproving the COBE Satellite discovery, they kept mum about it and let the fraudulent discovery stand. Planck thus has a demonstrated “political” propensity for covering the American butt, whatever the science is. It may be these things are being dictated from a much higher level.]

In another accompanying report, Australian scientific experts are also affirming that that the Bicep2 sky measurements are valid, but that the discovery is subject to the resolution of the foreground/background issue.

Australia is one of the leading countries in radio astronomy, and so this position is weighty.

On 24 July 2014, Mario Livio, a scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute tweeted thus:

“Mario Livio ‏@Mario_Livio Jul 24

@JoelAchenbach My pleasure.I still have some hopes that the #BICEP2 result will turn out to be real (after corrections for dust are made).”

So an internationally concerted position is being promulgated that there are no other issues with the Bicep2 measurements.

My position remains the same.

For me, what is going on is all too familiar: déjà vu all over again. But I must admit that I had hoped that the matter would be handled differently this time around.
