hello I have a question: i am trying to understand how we find out that the curvature of the universe is zero using the angular size of the hot spots of the d microwave background radiation. http://scienceblogs.com/startswithab...tire-universe/ [Broken] there is a picture in this blog showing the light rays from the opposite sides of the hot spots. My question is: doesn't the proof that the curvature is zero require that the rays are parallel to each other? If they are parallel in a positively curved universe they converge. But in a flat one they should remain parallel and in a negatively curved they should diverge. Then, in the last two cases, how do they meet in the eye?
