    Physics Nobel awarded for discoveries about the universe’s evolution and exoplanets

    Very cool stuff. These guys ha e really made a difference in our understanding of the universe. For a long time many doubted tbe existence of planets outside our Solar System. Some fools still do despite the preponderance of evidence. But what can you do?

    No one doubted the existence of exoplanets outside our solar system :laugh:.

    The first guy deserved half the prize if he found tools to study the CMB and it helped reveal the existence of dark matter and dark energy.

    Unfortunately... There are actually some who still; despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, doubt the existence of planets outside our solar system. Or at the very least, doubt the veracity of the claims for their discovery... D4F6F1CF-E559-4D39-8799-0B364BBD18FC.jpeg

    He was right and you were wrong :laugh:. The other two were the first to find proof and got the other half of their Nobel prize. Another example. People think there are multiple dimensions, but we've yet to prove the existence of the fourth dimension.
