The cosmic microwave background that permeates the universe has a Cold Spot, which is a fraction of a degree colder than its surroundings.

A new galaxy survey suggests that a supervoid isn’t responsible for the Cold Spot seen in the cosmic microwave background — the oddity may have a far more ancient origin. The post Debate on Universe’s Cold Spot Heats Up appeared first on Sky & Telescope.

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2011 was divided, one half awarded to Saul Perlmutter, the other half jointly to Brian P. Schmidt and Adam G. Riess "for the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the Universe through observations of distant supernovae".
