PLANCK SATELLITE REPORT ON BICEP2

There is a Bengali proverb: (After years of elaborate gestation) The mountain gives birth to a mouse.

That is what has happened with Planck report. It says nothing definitive. And this lack of definitiveness is quickly being turned into a positive for BICEP2.

Planck Collaboration has left more “outs” for the BICEP2 Team than there are fire escapes in a modern highrise.

The dangling gravitational wave carrot remains dangling, waving vigorously.

Here is my take:

Planck Satellite test of BICEP2 Telescope, Planck Collaboration, John Kovac Harvard, Jamie Bock CalTech, Chao-Lin Kuo Stanford, george efstathiou cambridge, Sean Carroll CalTech, NSF OIG Allison C. Lerner
