"There is "something new and interesting going on in the universe"


LONG BEACH, Calif. — Space is typically thought of as a very quiet place. But one team of astronomers has found a strange cosmic noise that booms six times louder than expected.

The roar is from the distant cosmos. Nobody knows what causes it.

ARCADE's mission was to search the sky for faint signs of heat from the first generation of stars, but instead they heard a roar from the distant reaches of the universe.

"The universe really threw us a curve," Kogut said. "Instead of the faint signal we hoped to find, here was this booming noise six times louder than anyone had predicted."

A roar. Really?

Doublplusundead seems to go with the theory "a titanic being of unimaginable horror."

You know, sometimes when the kids were little and they were driving me insane, I would go to into my room and scream.

I figure it's what God is doing basically with us. The Scientists are just hearing the roar behind the door.
