WMAP Release date

Post by Pablo Fosalba » November 18 2005

Hi,
just to raise the level of confusion: I think the rumour is not true.
In any case, I might be wrong, as I was last year.

I would rather bet on a data release after Xmas ;-)

Well... Even I don't think it will take another year... (Then again -- this is probably exactly the right time to take cheap shots like that, since it's only a few years until *we* will be in the same situation :-))

Months is probably still the right time scale, and it's perhaps even possible that the data may come before Christmas after all. So perhaps it would be fun to make things more interesting? To follow up on Pablo's suggestion -- would anybody be interesting in the following bet: I'm putting a $100 dollar dinner (to be paid at the next common conference) on that the WMAP data are not released before December 25, 2005. Anybody against? :-)

(The offer is open until November 22, to the first person who responds. And, by the way, I would be particularly interested in accepting bets from people within the WMAP team :-))

Hmm... Slightly disappointing, I must say -- no replies... This was one wager I wouldn't mind lose... :-)
