More Cosmic Fine-Tuning Found

The Anthropic Principle refuses to go away. The mass of the light quark adds to finely tuned factors that make the universe life-supporting.

Quasar Alignment Is "Spooky"

Of Molecules and Men

Atoms and molecules are tiny but can have a big influence on the habitability of planets and astrobiologists' theories about them.

Inflation Claim Crumbles into Dust

The much-hyped proof of cosmic inflation a few months ago has been discredited, revealing more about how science is done in the media age than about reality.

Big Bang's Lithium Problem Gets More Problematic

There's no escape; new measurements show far less lithium than predicted by the big bang, and more fine tuning than would be expected by chance.

Impacts: Creators or Destroyers?

Some astronomers invest a lot of creative power in bangs, crashes and explosions.

SETI Preacher Prophesies

One of the leading lights of SETI describes why he believes aliens will be found.

Inflation Concocted to Avoid a Young, Perfect Universe

Alan Guth concocted inflation theory in 1980 to avoid evidence for a 10,000-year-old universe. For his wild, evidence-free speculation, he may win a Nobel Prize.

Archive Classic: State of the Cosmos 2005: Alan Guth Explains Inflation

As Alan Guth rises to prominence this year for his inflation proposal, it might be useful for readers to see what he said about it in 2005.

Existence of Universe Is Highly Improbable

Theologians might rightly celebrate a recognition by cosmologists that the universe is so finely-tuned, it shouldn't exist.
