Big Bang’s Smoking Gun

The world shifted two days ago.For decades physicists have been tying to figure out how the universe spread out so fast while keeping the same temperature. The best guess they had was the theory of inflation proposed by Dr. Alan Guth in 1979.

As of Monday the world knows that Dr. Guth was correct. The smoking gun of inflation had been found by a team of scientists working at the South Pole. The below video shows a colleague telling Dr. Guth that his theory has been proven:

As you can imagine, this discovery pretty much solidifies Big Bang cosmology, which is pretty cool. 🙂
