Surely this can't be more important than determining what "intent to inflame" means.

The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) will host a press conference at 12:00 noon EDT (16:00 UTC) today to present the first results from the BICEP2 experiment, which measures B-mode polarization of the cosmic microwave background. This finding has major implications for our understanding of the first moments of the universe.

I thought the even distribution of matter in the known universe was already adequate proof of inflation. If that's the announcement, it wouldn't exactly blow my socks off...

No, that's not a proof of inflation, it's just a problem with the classic BB model that inflation addresses.
