Precisely. That's what's intriguing about this. He claims it does give
differentiating predictions that might be detectable by the Planck
spacecraft.
"> Confirmation of Valentini's idea would be one of the biggest advances in
physics in decades. The Planck spacecraft, launched in May by the European
Space Agency (Science, 1 May, p. 584), will take a closer look at CMB and
could conceivably find evidence supporting Valentini's predictions.
