“There is no end. There is no beginning.” – Federico Fellini
As it turns out, the Big Bang may just be a TV show.
Typically considered the most likely cosmological model for the formation of the universe, the Big Bang theory explains the universe’s expansion from an extremely hot and dense state into its current evolutionary form.
While this theory has been built upon for nearly a century, scientists are now calling the entire thing into question based on a simple inconsistency in the physics.
Here’s what research now indicates.
According to the Bing Bang Theory, the universe is approximately 13.8 billion years old.
The origins of the theory stem from astronomer and physicist Georges Lemaître, who noted in 1927 that the expanding universe could be traced back to a single origin point called singularity.
In 1929, Edwin Hubble proved that galaxies are moving further apart, and in 1965, the discovery of cosmic microwave background radiation helped support the Big Bang Theory even more strongly.
And while the Big Bang Theory is based heavily in accepted general relativity, some scientists still criticize the theory because it can only explain what has happened from the time of the supposed Big Bang while failing to describe what happened at or before that specific moment.
