Prof. Jamie Bock (Duke Physics '87) from Caltech was one of the leaders of the group which achieved the recent exciting experimental result on gravitational waves from the earliest time, detected by the BICEP2 telescope at the South Pole. An interview with Prof. Bock is featured on the Phys.org website. Read "Building BICEP2: A conversation with Jamie Bock" online here. More material on these results along with pictures and the paper can be found here. You can also read DukeToday's article "Duke Graudate a Leader on Big Bang Inflation Theory Discovery" here.
