    • On March 17, 2014, BICEP2 announced they had potentially found evidence of the existence of primordial gravitational waves. Afterward, there was substantial controversy about the origin of the signal. Do you think potentially major results should be publicly released before being verified by the scientific community, or only after exhaustive peer-review?

    • only after professional and scientific community review and consensus, or single handedly if discovery by a professional

    • Yes they should probably be released asap, suitably caveated that these are 1st indicative results only which are provisional and subject to review, correction and change.
