TED of the Month: Allan Adams – The discovery that could rewrite physics

On March 17, 2014, a group of physicists announced a thrilling discovery: the ‘smoking gun’ data for the idea of an inflationary universe, a clue to the Big Bang. But what is that exactly: Smoking gun data? Or for that matter an inflationary universe?

A lot of big words. That’s why Allan Adams takes the stage in this TED talk. He can tell us more about the discovery and its possible repercussions. And he’s the perfect guy to do it. Because he isn’t just a theoretical physicist who works on fluid dynamics, quantum field theory and string theory, no he can explain all of this in great detail too.
