Crete observatory to host unique ‘Big Bang’ experiment

The Skinaka Observatory on the island of Crete has been selected to carry out a unique astrophysics experiment that seeks to “sweep aside” the veil of cosmic dust in the universe in order to reveal traces of the Big Bang, the “primeval light” formed at the earliest moments of creation. The Crete observatory will be joined by South Africa’s SAAO Observatory in the attempt.

The attempt was announced on Wednesday at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science EWASS 2016 conference held in Athens, which organised by the Eugenides Foundation in collaboration the European Astronomical Society and the Greek Astronomical Society.
