Talk:Wilkinson microwave anisotropy probe
This article is clear and covers well the important topics. Minor comments below:
Above Figure 2, in the paragraph "The attitude": missing period, should read "WMAP-Sun line. Blow-down hydrazine".
Figure 3 caption: grammar, should read "effects of the Earth's proper motion are removed".
I realize the space is restricted but the cosmological results mentioned should have more detailed caveats. I suggest the following phrasings:
"The universe is 13.7 billion years old, with a margin of error of about 1% if one assumes the LCDM model". (One could add a link to the LCDM article in Scholarpedia.)
"In combination with large scale structure measurements, many particular inflation models are ruled out".
"producing a spatially flat (Euclidean) universe".
"WMAP combined with other cosmological data has determined that the universe is flat".
FROM THE AUTHOR: Good points. I have addressed them all.
FROM REFEREE B: Looks good. Note in the second to last paragraph of the article there is a " rather than a period after the phrase ruled out.
FROM THE AUTHOR: Thanks. Typo is now fixed.
