Alan Guth, will share $1 million award with Alexei Starobinsky and Andrei Linde of Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics in the Russia and Stanford University, respectively. Together, they’re quoted by Kavli Foundation “for ground-breaking the supposition of cosmic price rises.” Alan Guth projected the theory in 1980 about the cosmic inflation, the same year Alan Guth tied up with the MIT staff.

This theory elaborates a period of tremendously rapid exponential growth within the first insignificant part of a second of the space’s survival.
