    Harvard scientists were ebullient in their announcement that they’ve uncovered evidence that strongly supports the Big Bang Theory and the inflation of the universe it involves.

    Evidence of inflation, the hyper-expansion of the universe from microscopic speck to infinity, has until now been among the greatest missing pieces in the formation puzzle.

    Einstein’s theory of relativity itself dictates that some sort of residual marker would have been left and would still be detectable in traces of very, very old light.

    Scientists say they’ve finally found it.

    Using the South Pole’s BICEP2 telescope, the team was able to zero in on a patch of light that was around when it all started.

    In it, they found a unique twisted pattern, which they’ve determined are the gravitational waves they’ve been looking for.

    Confirming such an existence began 50 years ago when Bell Labs researchers detected audio recordings of what they determined to be the remnants of the Big Bang.

    In the early 80s a scientist stepped forward with a formalized theory about the possibility of rapid expansion, but proof of the origination point remained elusive.

    The recent finding still needs to undergo rigorous review, but the community is already talking Nobel.
