Back in March, scientists operating the telescope BICEP2 announced that they may have found proof of the Big Bang that created the Universe, while others claimed that their findings could just as well be explained by light scattering off dust between the stars in the Milky Way. And now, new research has confirmed that dust has foiled their "breakthrough" discovery.
Despite previous belief, dust found on the ocean seabed may not in fact come from supernovae, according to a new study, shedding light on these stellar explosions.
Iron, though present in miniscule amounts in seawater, is a major player in the ocean's carbon cycle. Now scientists have assessed the various sources of dissolved iron in the north Atlantic Ocean, finally tracing the source of this precious metal to the dusty Sahara Desert.
Scientists have long accepted the Big Bang theory as the explanation for the Universe, and a groundbreaking experiment may have finally found proof, but others claim that dust has foiled their findings.
