From the World Science Festival
The World Science Festival took place between May 28-June 1 2014 in New York City. Current and exciting topics in Science were discussed, debated and shared there. One of the sessions was RIPPLES FROM THE BIG BANG: LISTENING TO THE BEGINNING OF TIME held at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts on Friday May 30, 2014. Here the top Scientists in the field of Cosmology Andrei Linde, Alan Guth, Amber Miller, John Kovac, Paul Steinhardt took part in this program which was Moderated by Dr. Brian Greene the popular Scientist and Science Communicator. Watch this video patiently till the end it is very enlightening.
About the discussion in the video…In March, a major breakthrough in understanding the origin of universe took the scientific community–and the general public–by storm. A team lead by astronomer John Kovac, using a powerful telescope at the South Pole, reported evidence of ripples in the fabric of space time produced by the big bang, a long-sought prediction of our most refined approach to cosmology, the inflationary theory. Amidst the worldwide celebration, though, some have been quietly suggesting that the champagne has been uncorked prematurely. Join a singular conversation, among the world’s most respected pioneers in cosmological theory and observation, that will explore the state of the art in the ongoing quest to understand the beginning of the universe. Watch on…
