Standard cosmology It is nearly homogeneous It is nearly isotropic The vacuum energy density is very small It is expanding It is accelerating The space is almost flat The perturbations around homogeneity have a flat (slightly red) spectrum It is a growing function Since it is small today, it was even smaller at earlier time!

Standard cosmology It is nearly homogeneous It is nearly isotropic The vacuum energy density is very small It is expanding It is accelerating The space is almost flat The perturbations around homogeneity have a flat (slightly red) spectrum What created perturbations? If they were created by primordial quantum fluctuations, its resulting spectrum for normal matter is not flat Their existence is necessary for the formation of structure (clusters, galaxies)
