On Thursday, the WMAP team revealed the best map ever drawn of microwaves from the early universe, showing variations in the brightness of radiation from primordial matter. The pattern of these variations fits the predictions of a physical theory called inflation, which suggests that during the first split second of existence the universe expanded incredibly fast.

...Still chasing the beggining. Oh and, dear reader, here is a lovely cute quote from Brian Green:

"Galaxies are nothing but quantum mechanics writ large across the sky".

If the universe is a quantum computer, ¿then what are we?
