Ever wondered why all determinations of the 2.7 K cosmic black body are so indirect? That is because direct determination – even though it is the most doable experiment – does not show it.

What depends on the 2.7 K Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMB)?

BIG BANG COSMOLOGY
COSMOLOGICAL INFLATION
B-MODE POLARIZATION
ACCELERATION OF EXPANSION OF THE UNIVERSE
DARK MATTER/DARK ENERGY
STOCHASTIC GRAVITATIONAL WAVE

So what does this all-important 2.7 K depend on?

When I returned and read about it some more, I found that, right off the bat, Stephen Crothers had declared this discovery a fraud. So I decided to look further into it from an instrumental and observational standpoint. It was a total fraud.

The repeated and emphatic award of the Breakthrough Prize for high profile physics frauds – backed by Edward Witten and his cohort – makes this prize a scourge upon our scientific civilization.
