Visualising the controversy
I find that I understand concepts much better when I use flow charts; I’ve had one for my controversy in the works for most of the semester, gradually evolving into this (hopefully) final flow chart:
You can see, in blue, the three levels of controversy I noted in my previous post and, in white, the causes and effects of these controversies (SN=supernovae, CDM=cold dark matter).
In the next few posts, I’ll explain each of the controversies and the controversy framework each fits into, and I’ll comment on the current status of dark energy.
