ESA Figure 1: The Cosmic Microwave Background, or CMB, as seen by ESA's Planck satellite (upper right half) and by its predecessor, NASA's Wilkinson Microwave Anisotopy Probe (lower left half). With greater resolution and sensitivity over nine frequency channels, Planck has delivered the most precise image so far of the CMB.

The precise picture delivered by Planck conforms most spectacularly to the expectations of the Standard Model of the universe, but the evidence of anomalous features also indicates that something fundamental may be missing from the standard framework. By R. RAMACHANDRAN

I am not a scientist to analyse this subject matter. However, I feel that the SMC and CMB models of the evolution of universe definitely should be viewed in conjuction with the Evolution of cosmological perturbations in Bose&Einstein condensate dark matter.

I shall be thankul if a detailed deliberation is given on SMC & CMB models alongwith the Bose-Einstein thory of dark matter so that people of our country are enlightened on this subject as well.

Thanks for the nice self contained article giving a bird's eye view of SMC and CMB.

I've been a professional writer for more than four decades and won multiple awards including for complex topics but I have to admit, this article is so full of scientific jargon even I have trouble understanding it. A longer and simpler story would have been to everyone's benefit.

Abandon the Big Bang and Inflation models all together. You have no evidence for this creation event or this supposed expansion of the Universe.
