Planck and CMB

Matti Pitkänen


The Planck data is released. There are two kinds of anomalies associated with small angular momenta: amplitude anomalies and directional anomalies.  For small even values of l they tend to be aligned with each other and with what is called Axis of Evil, which is almost in the orbital plane of Earth. The celestial direction angles of the Axis of Evil are (RA= 212 o, δ= 25 o). In TGD framework, a natural explanation for the Axis of Evil would be in terms of long galactic cosmic strings.
