What caused quantum inflation?
« on: 06/08/2016 00:53:02 »
Derek McComiskey  asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi Naked Scientists.  My question:
 
 It seems to be well established that the early universe underwent a tremendous expansion that we call Cosmic Inflation.  Do we know what caused it and why it lasted for just the time it did?  Is there any link between Inflation and the current expansion that we are seeing which we call Dark Energy?  Could they have the same cause?
 
 Thanks
