    "Today is a great day for science, humanity and Andrei Dmitriyevich Linde—one of the main authors of the inflationary universe theory that was confirmed today. Watch his emotions as assistant Professor Chao-Lin Kuo surprises him with the news of the evidence that supports a whole life of theoretical work.

    Kuo and his colleagues were the ones who got 'the first images of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time—the 'first tremors of the Big Bang.'"

    totally. that abe lincoln looking aussie was so weird and not all that bright. i swear those guys know they're full of shit, which is why they learn ways to never answer questions and to reframe things in meaningless but impressive sounding ways.

    it's definitely worth watching if you get some time to do so.
