Moreover, beyond our own universe there might be an endless number of other universes bubbling into frothy eternity, like a pot of pasta water boiling over." Dr.
Kovac and his collaborators, working in an experiment known as Bicep, for Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization, reported their results in a scientific briefing at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics today and in a set of papers submitted to The Astrophysical Journal.
A possible hitch in the presumed course of cosmic evolution could have infused space itself with a special energy that exerted a repulsive force, causing the universe to balloon faster than the speed of light for a prodigiously violent instant, smoothing out iron out all the wrinkles and irregularities and solving the paradox like why the heavens look uniform from pole to pole.
Today, Guth’s realization was contirmed by radio astronomers who reported that they had seen the beginning of the Big Bang, confrming his hypothesis, known as inflation.
Guth is currently the Victor Weisskopf Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Kovac of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics detected these ripples in the fabric of space-time — gravitational waves — the signature of a universe exploding when it was roughly a trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second old. It would open vast realms of time and space and energy to science and speculation.
