The Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) produced in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) undergoes a similar evolution to that of our Universe. The collision produces an explosive expansion caused by high pressure gradients and it then cools down, forming free-streaming hadrons. The earliest stages of the Universe are probed through the cosmic microwave background (CMB). In a similar manner to the analysis performed on it, we calculate the multiplicity power spectrum of heavy ion collisions and present the issues of dealing with a partial "sky" coverage.
