Cosmic Inflation Theory Explained In Comic Form
Last week's discovery of primordial gravitational waves may well have been a monumental one, but it was also a discovery that flew over a lot of heads. That's understandable of course, because the theory of cosmic inflation is not an easy one to get your head around. Thank goodness then, that PHDcomics.com stepped in and helped out with this comic book explanation.
Whereas much of the coverage on this groundbreaking discovery befuddled even the most astronomically adept, PHD Comics have laid it out in a beautifully simple fashion that combines all the theory one needs to understand inflation, with some pretty sweet illustrations to drill the message home.
As their name suggests, PHD comics are pretty damn great when it comes to explaining complex theories in comic form, so if you've still got a hunger for education check out some of their other titles including The Higgs Boson Explained and The Fingerprint of Stars.
