Startling Data Show
A Newborn Universe

By Rob Stein
WASHINGTON POST

WASHINGTON - A powerful satellite has captured the best picture ever taken of the infant universe, an image so detailed that scientists said it answers some of the most important questions about the cosmos, including when it was born and how it will probably die.

The image, created from a year's worth of data collected by a NASA probe 1 million miles from Earth, has solved longstanding puzzles, such as what the universe looked like right after it was forged in the violent inferno of the Big Bang, when the first stars blinked on in the coalescing heavens and what kind of matter makes up the expanding universe that exists today. Full story.

One of the best ways to protect computer data is to perform regular backups. The Computing Infrastructure Support (CIS) Department offers several options for employees who may not have the time or expertise to do their own backups. To learn more, or to get tips on how to help ensure that the maximum number of files are protected and that recovered data are easily restored, click here.
