Conversations Beyond Science and Religion – Lost in Space: Gravity Waves and the Inflationary Big Bang

Media outlets across the globe have recently reported that a group of physicists, using sophisticated imaging equipment in the south pole, have detected gravity waves that in turn prove the reality of the inflationary big bang. So what does this mean? What are gravity waves and how can these waves prove the reality of an inflation scenario that supposedly occurred less than a trillionth of a second after creation? On this show, Philip Mereton and guest, Alexandar Unzicker, author of Bankrupting Physics: How Today’s Top Scientists are Gambling Away Their Credibility, take a fresh perspective on this latest cosmological finding, and talk about what it all really means.
