1% of TV "white noise" is light from the big bang
    #4388682 - 07/10/05 02:27 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

So if you want to see the big bang, look at some white noise. I think that's pretty badass. It's just 1% but that's still a lot really, considering how long ago it happened.

That's the cosmic static left from the bigbang. You can pick it up on radio scanners too.

Yep. Microwaves from the big bang..still detectable by the most insignificant of devices.

its a well documented phenomena. big bang creates energy (electromagnetic radiation) which travels to other parts of the universe. by the time it reaches our part, its a few billion years in the future. tv ariel picks up microwave signals (electromagnetic radiation) and represents the signal with an image on the screen.

Another SMALL percentage of TV white noise is made from virtual particles in the quantum background foam :wink:

You should read "Timeline" by Michael Crichton, it talks a good deal about "quantum foam" :wink:

"1% of TV "white noise" is light from the big bang"

yeah, but at MTV is 80% and just about 10% of it from big bands ... :crazy2:

Actually we can see the spot where the big bang took place. All the information can be gleamed from NOVA, the best show on earth. We can detect the light from the big bang very, very easily. It's fact.

So what...we came from the big bang too...

Actually it is possible to prove that this "white noise" exists, and it has been experimentally measured to a HIGH degree by several experimental satellites (COBE, WMAP) as well as ground-based and aerial detection.

The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), as it's called, did not originate with the Big Bang...but several hundred thousand years after the Big Bang. It's existence is the greatest proven evidence for the existence of a Big Bang-like event.

For the first few hundred thousand years ATB (after the bang) the Universe was opaque to radiation. It was too hot for atoms to form, so the Universe consisted of a large ball of plasma. Photons of radiation interact strongly with plasma because they are absorbed and re-emitted by electrons readily (the electrons are not bound to a proton, in a plasma). As the Universe expands, it cools down, so when it had expanded enough it cooled to the point where atoms could form. This freed the massive amount of radiation that existed at that point to STOP interacting with electrons and flow freely throughout space. The Universe became transparent to light (radiation).

It is this light, that was set free at that particular instant, which we can still detect as the CMB. In fact any direction you look in, you will find the CMB. It exists throughout all points in space because it was formed in all points in space almost simultaneously. (it does differ by a VERY small fraction in different patches of the sky - further evidence for the Big Bang model).

The radiation cools along with the Universe as it expands (the expansion causes a redshift of the photons) so it's current temperature is about 2.7 Kelvins with a frequency in the microwave range. This frequency and temperature was predicted by the Big Bang theory, which is why the CMB is such good evidence for a Big Bang.
