The authors, Granett, Szapudi,and Neyrinck, investigate the possibility that the Cold Spot ....SEE:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CMB_cold_spot...in the WMAP data is due to a supervoid of low density. Although there appears to be a few low density areas at low z, they are not contiguous. At higher z, nothing appears to be a low density supervoid.

CMB cold spot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CMB_cold_spot) wiki link. You messed it up by not leaving a space between the URL and the next "...in the". :)

So this independantly confirms Zhang & Huterer (http://arxiv.org/abs/0908.3988)? They do cite the paper, but only in the introduction.
