Join the search for cosmic 'axis of evil'

"In 2005, Land noticed an unexpected alignment of spots in the cosmic background radiation, which seems to defy the standard model of cosmology. Earlier this year, New Scientist reported that a study of 1660 spiral galaxies suggested the galaxies were oriented along this so-called "axis of evil". Land says, "It's a massive and alarming claim, which if true, forces us to come up with a new framework for cosmology."
