The impossible task of physics for the last few decades has been to figure out how General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are part of the same universe, bc they seem to contradict each other at every turn. Inflation Theory was one way of describing how they jive, and now we have actual evidence that supports that way of explaining it. Woo!
Way big deal! My inner physicist is peeing his pants.
And believe it or not, I first learned about this experiment in a theology classroom.
