The Primordial Graviton Background with Sunny Vagnozzi

Jim talks with Sunny Vagnozzi of the University of Trento about a way to disprove inflationary theories of cosmology. All of them. If we were able to see a Primordial Graviton Background, which is the graviational equivalent to the cosmic microwave background, then we would know that there was no inflation. The event that would create the graviton background would have to occur before cosmic inflation started, and inflation would smooth it out. And the background would disappear.
