The article ends with
This is how science grinds away at problems, and if the authors of the paper are correct, then it further validates the Big Bang Theory, and brings us one step closer to understanding how our Universe was formed.

Is that a correct conclusion, or is their paper actually a minor (suggested) modification to BBT so that it better fits the data?

Just trying to clarify whether this qualifies as modifying the model to fit the data, or revising the data to fit the model.
