Cosmological Constant and Vacuum Energy

  1. Mar 25, 2015 #1
    I was reading a book about cosmolgy.And there wrotes vacuum energy must be higher than cosmological constant 10100 times to satisfy (It may just the opposite ) observations. Is that true ?

    Really nice answer! Somehow I had missed seeing that short, clear essay by Baez. One of the most cogent treatments of the CC topic I can think of.

    That's the usual experimental result one gets from reading Baez:)
