I didn't tell you to fuck off. I told the Guardian to fuck off with its click bait.

So, after about 25 years of going "Space is cool, I should get a telescope one day", I may actually get around to doing it next week...there's a store between Calgary and Red Deer that have 8" Dobsonians that I've seen several reviews which say they're rather good :)

"you see that very small dot in the sky, if you look through this, it's a tiny bit bigger!"

THE curtain at the edge of the universe may be rippling, hinting that there?s more backstage. Data from the European Space Agency?s Planck telescope could be giving us our first glimpse of another universe, with different physics, bumping up against our own.

That?s the tentative conclusion of an analysis by Ranga-Ram Chary, a researcher at Planck?s US data centre in California. Armed with Planck?s painstaking map of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) ? light lingering from the hot, soupy state of the early universe ? Chary revealed an eerie glow that could be due to matter from a neighbouring universe leaking into ours.

I imagine this is something similar to what they will see:
