Mesopotamian Universe

Recent measurements (c. 2001) by a number of ground-based and balloon-based experiments...have shown that ... the universe was known to be flat to within about 15% accuracy.  WMAP has confirmed this result with very high accuracy and precision. We now know that the universe is flat with only a 2% margin of error.

We used to know that the Earth was flat.  Now we know that the entire universe is (basically) flat.

I love modern science.
