Big Bang data agree with the Double Dark theory
The blue curve is the prediction of the Double Dark theory, which agrees spectacularly well with the white points, the 2010 data from NASA’s Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe satellite. What is graphed is the amount of structure on different angular scales in the temperature of the cosmic background radiation, pictured on the sphere. Large angular scales are on the left, and smaller ones are on the right. The graph is from N. Jarosik et al., “Seven-Year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP7) Observations: Sky Maps, Systematic Errors, and Basic Results, Astrophysical Journal Supplement (in press).

The Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite provided data on the largest angular scales, and COBE data announced in 1992 gave an early confirmation of a key Cold Dark Matter theory prediction.
