R.T.: Opaque medium? Now what would that be made up of? yanniru: FREE ELECTRONS---just like a conductor, which has free electrons. The electrons absorb and re-emit all photons. It is only when the free electrons get attached to nuclei to form atoms at 300,000 years after the big-bang that light has a chance to propagate freely. Greg: If the primordial Universe inflated ?according to superstring theory? at the moment of "last scatter" and determined the present temperature variation in the 3k environment that permeates the Universe, how did protons propagate freely since they would likewise have been confined to the speed of light as was the 3k environment?
