The core story (the start of my universe) is “The Don't Understand,” which utilizes Daniel's computer diary, something that is vastly different from his personal journal.

## The Size and Shape of the Universe Flashcards | Quizlet

If you have ever studied trigonometry, you know that with the lengthof two sides and the enclosed angle, you can determine all the sides and angles of a triangle (Recall the "side-angle-side"theorem!). Our angle is that created by the spacebetween peak temperature differences in the microwave light. WMAP will measure the angle between the peak in temperature differences.

WMAP will be able to determine the likely shape of our Universe. So far, the data points to things being flat. How can we tell this? WMAP will measure a great big "triangle" in the sky and see if it adds up to what a flat, Euclidean-based universe should be.

## What shape is the Universe? - io9

That distance between peaks corresponds to the distance that sound waves traveled during the first 400,000 years after the Big Bang. The early Universe was a dense fog of and that didn't clear up for about 400,000 years. Some patches in the fog were a slightly denser and hotter than others. Vibrations caused by the movement of caused sound waves to ripple through the fog. The sound waves map the distance from one region of high or low to the next.

## What is the shape of the universe

For starters, there's the spherical universe, where an airplane sent in one direction ultimately comes back around, as is the case on Earth. A triangle in this universe has angles adding up to more than 180 degrees. Parallel lines ultimately meet, just like two friends walking parallel to each other on their way to the North Pole. Cowboys may fancy the hyperbolic universe, which is saddle shaped. A triangle here adds up to less than 180 degrees. Then there's the good, old flat universe, which obeys Euclidean geometry: triangles add up to 180 degrees; parallel lines never meet.

## The Shape of the Universe is Love. - Wm. Paul Young

So for our triangle, we have one distance across the sky (the sound horizon distance, which is the distance the sound waves travel for 400,000 years), and an angle, to be determined by WMAP. The unknown distance is the distance the microwave background has traveled since the last scattering. If the angle is one degree on the sky, as many scientists predict, then the Universe may be flat. If the anglebetween peaks in temperature differences is, say, two degrees, then sound waves will have had to have covered twice the ground in 400,000 years. This would imply that the Universe is open or curved.

Science fiction writers have taken the liberty to describe the as having all kinds of funky shapes. Hey, are to blame, for their theories predict a wide variety of possible universes -- all of which are mathematically feasible.
