    One Universe or ManyWorld Science Festival 2013Saturday, June 1,
    2013 - 800 PM - 930 PMThe inflationary theory of cosmology, an
    enduring theory about our universe and how it was formed, explains
    that just after the Big Bang, the universe went through a period of
    rapid expansion. This theory has been critical to understanding
    whats going on in the cosmos today. But now, this long-held
    notion—which seems to suggest as-yet-unproven and perhaps
    unprovable features such as the multiverse—is under increasing
    attack. Through informed debate among architects of the inflationary
    theory and its prime competitors, this program will explore our best
    attempts to understand where we came from.This program is part of
    the Big Ideas Series.PanelJohn Hockenberry (Moderator)John
    Hockenberry is an award-winning journalist with twenty-five years
    experience in radio, broadcast television and print. He is the host
    of WNYC and PRIs The Takeaway, a correspondent for PBS Frontline,
    and a noted presenter and moderator at conferences such as TED,
    Aspen Ideas, and the World Science Festival.Andreas Albrecht
    (Theoretical Cosmologist)Andreas Albrecht is a leading theoretical
    cosmologist. He received his Ph.D. from the University of
    Pennsylvania in 1983 where, with Paul Steinhardt, he wrote one of
    the original papers on new or slow roll inflation.Alan Guth
    (Cosmologist)Alan Guth is a professor of physics at MIT, and
    world-renowned for his discovery of inflationary cosmology, the
    dominant cosmological paradigm for over two decades.Andrei Linde
    (Cosmologist)Andrei Linde is one of the authors of the inflationary
    universe scenario, which is gradually becoming the standard paradigm
    of modern cosmology. He invented its most popular versions new
    inflation, chaotic inflation, and hybrid inflation.Neil Turok
    (Physicist)Neil Turok develops and tests fundamental theories of the
    cosmos. He pioneered the open inflation and cyclic universe models,
    as well as observational tests for dark energy and the nature of the
    relic perturbations using the microwave sky, both subsequently
    confirmed.Reproduced for educational purposes only and for no
