Journey to the Beginning of Time: Gravitational Waves, Inflation and Fundamental Physics
Gravitational Waves from Inflation may have been discovered, or may soon be discovered. If they are, this will push our empirical handle on the universe back in time by 49 orders of magnitude, and will allow us to explore issues ranging from supersymmetry to grand unification, the quantum theory of gravity, and even the possible existence of other universes.
