Steinhardt's changing views from Big Bang to Big Bounce featured in Simons Foundation video

Thursday, Feb 21, 2019

The Simons Foundation recently featured Princeton University Professor Paul Steinhardt in its web video series, "Four Minutes With."

Steinhardt, a 2018 Simons Fellow in theoretical physics, explains how he has changed his thinking on cosmic inflation and the Big Bang theory and is now reconsidering a "Big Bounce" cyclical theory of the universe. Steinhardt was a key developer of the inflation theory. 

Professor Steinhardt is co-director of the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science and is a professor in the departments of both physics and astrophysical sciences.
