On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, physicist Rob Sheldon discusses the BICEP2 Consortium’s apparent discovery of evidence for the inflationary model of the Big Bang, and the annoucement’s impact on questions of cosmic fine-tuning. The consortium later withdrew their claim to have found the first evidence for the primordial “B-mode” polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). In part 2 here, Dr. Sheldon explains his questioning of whether the signal detected by BICEP2 was real.  Please consider donating to support the IDTF Podcast.
