Gregory Kestin

Physics Ph.D. student Gregory Kestin, graduating this year, wrote and produced a short video on cosmic inflation with the PBS program NOVA. This video describes one of the most spectacular physics discoveries of the century: the BICEP2 results, which reveal new secrets of gravity and the birth of our universe. The video takes the viewer back to the beginning of time and explains how quantum particles in the infant universe could have created the cosmic fingerprint that scientists can see today.
