Telescope at the South Pole Will Study the Early Universe

The renewed telescope at the South Pole can now be used to study the early Universe. The device now has a new camera that will analyze cosmic radiation and microwaves with great precision, reported the online edition Engadget. The telescope has 16 000 detectors, which is 10 times more than the previous similar experiment. This will allow to detect the smallest changes in temperature when the detector is illuminated by  light. Herby, the device will be able to detect even the weakest residues of ancient microwaves that scientists believe abound in the Universe. Their detection, however, was very difficult with...
