Dr. Andrei Linde is a principal architect of cosmic inflation theory from the 1980s. After several decades went by, there wasn’t any experimental confirmation that his theory was correct? until this week. Linde found his theory confirmation to be unexpected and pleasant. The video above was posted on Monday and it features Stanford University assistant professor Dr. Chao-Lin Kuo going to Linde’s home to tell him the news. Dr. Kuo explained to Linde that new research gave “smoking gun evidence” to support Dr. Linde’s inflation theory. Champagne was popped to celebrate.
