Professor of Physics Aiming to Record Sound of Big-Bang

Professor of Physics Aiming to Record Sound of Big-BangThe sound of the universe being born has been re-mastered by Professor of Physics, Emeritus John Cramer, from the University of Washington, Seattle, in high fidelity.

It has been nearly 13.798 ± 0.037 billion years since when the universe was born. But, any sound the event had likely produced has died away long back.

The professor of Physics has been working since some 10 years on the sound. Since, scientists have long suspected that the universe's expansion released massive sound waves, which echoed through hydrogen and plasma.

It is believed that the cosmic background radiation was shaped by the sound waves, which turned some areas hotter, while others remained colder.

Professor Emeritus has been making use of the information collected by NASA probes on the cosmic background radiation or CMB (cosmic microwave background). He is engaged in such work ever since the first CMB data was gathered by NASA's Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP).

The aim is to reform as well as record the Big Bang's sound, the report found.

"The new frequency spectrum goes to much higher frequencies than did the WMAP analysis, and therefore offers a more 'high-fidelity' rendition of the Sound of the Big Bang", said Professor Cramer on his website.
