This is Universe The eBook #180 the compelling first hand account of Alan Guth’s paradigm breaking discovery of the origins of the universe and of his dramatic rise from young researcher to physics superstar Guth’. Almost everyone has heard Barenaked Ladies' lyrics on the popular TV show “The Big Bang Theory “The whole universe was in a hot dense state Then nearly 14 billion years ago expansion started WaitWell without Alan Guth’s seminal discovery of expansion Bare Naked Ladies would have had to write a different set of lyricsand we would still be trying to figure out how it all began What is “expansion” In a nutshell it is the time billionths of a second in duration when the first infinitesimal particle exploded and caused the entire universe to be created Almost overnight Guth himself like the universe he postulated exploded from an unknown grad student to one of the superstars of astrophysicsThe notion of the universe starting with a “big bang” had been around since the ‘thirties actually a later term of derision of the physicist Fred Hoyle who favored the Steady State theory of the origin of the universe But Guth took the theory a step further He postulated that not only did the universe begin in one incomprehensible fraction of a second but the entire universe as it is now was created in that same time frame In layman’s terms it simply suddenly “was” Guth later jokingly referred to this expansion as “the ultimate free lunch”All this is meant to be an introduction to his book THE INFLATIONARY UNIVERSE First published in 1997 it is a look back at 1984 when Guth a young researcher “stumbled” on an extraordinary theory of the cosmic beginnings He writes in an engaging non scientific style meant to reach out and grab readers such as I people who have a hazy grasp of physics but who want a better notion of how our universe came to beNow a professor of physics at MIT Guth’s name has become almost a household word I would not be surprised if he were soon awarded a Nobel in PhysicsRead this book and then sing along with Barenaked Ladieswith a new understanding of the hot dense state and the miraculous expansion that started it allSlán Erin O'uinn

This is anecdotal than a rigorous scientific review Fun and instructional read I occasionally would see saw Dr Guth at MIT in Grad school at the time I was till an undergrad I however knew relatively well his colleague Dr Henry Tye who went on to become a String Theorist at Cornell I wound up swithcing to Nuclear Engineering altogether I read this book a while ago I am a lot interested in FT checkout Huang's book Dr Guth relates in his book how he first had collaborated with Dr Tye on a Particle PhysicsCosmology piece of research during a post doc at MIT This research led him on to come up with his inflationary theory I as many others am uncomfortable with monetary and cosmic hyper inflationSpace expands but it is a void expansion at a speed much higher than the speed of lightSo what exactly is expanding Could it be dark energy andor matter You heard it here first folks But yes inflation is extremely useful and necessary to explains the near isotropy of the Universe
