Inflation Scientist's Heart-melting Reaction to Great News

Inflation Scientist's Heart-melting Reaction to Great News

Author: Reilly Capps/Wednesday, March 19, 2014/Categories: space science

Congratulations, Dr. Andrei Linde, you explained how the universe works. How do you feel? 

Even physics is a reality show now. And a camera crew tagged along to see Dr. Linde receive the news that his theory of inflation had been buttressed by new observations. 

The video, below, is so adorable. His wife seems to nearly collapse. "Can you repeat that?" Linde says, unable to believe the news. And, again, "can you repeat that?" 

He looks like a grandfather who has just been told that his daughter gave birth to an angel, or who just found out that Amelia Earhart, his childhood girlfriend, has been living comfortably on a tropical island for 70 years.
