There was no Big Bang

THE UNI­VERSE did not start with the Big Bang. It did not have a be­gin­ning, nor will it ever end. It has been present for­ever, says a study which has for­mu­lated an equa­tion. The most preva­lent the­ory of ori­gin of uni­verse says it all be­gan 13.8 bil­lion years ago when ev­ery­thing was con­densed in an in­finites­i­mally small point, or sin­gu­lar­ity, and ex­ploded and ex­panded. Math­e­mat­i­cal cal­cu­la­tions and Ein­stein's The­ory of Gen­eral Rel­a­tiv­ity ex­plain the Big Bang and what hap­pened af­ter it, but they do not ex­plain sin­gu­lar­ity or what hap­pened be­fore it. The new study claims to have pre­pared a model which sug­gests that sin­gu­lar­ity did not ex­ist and gives the uni­verse an in­fi­nite age. Physics Let­ters B, Fe­bru­ary 4
