    Excellent presentation: An introduction, or possible review, of the BIG BANG theory by an originator of inflation theory, Alan Guth of MIT:

    Note the video is in TWO PARTS...scroll down a bit for part II.

    I watched the entire video, it's an excellent overview. I'm trying to find that slide/graph showing the various fits for the multipole expansion of the CMB. I need to add that to the notes for my astronomy course. Any ideas?

    Does anyone know where I can get Guth's "favorite graph in the whole world" and the one following in this talk (shows "curves representing other theories")? I emailed him a request, but he's probably too busy.
