Hello, If your a supporter of the "Steady State Theory" (like me) theoretically you can't dismiss the "Oscillating Theory" due to the fact it includes the provision for a Universe always being in existence.
Hello, It now appears some scientists are starting to question the big bang theory & replacing it with the "steady state theory" instead. Personally speaking I can more readily accept our Universe has always existed then being created by a big bang (from nothing) some time in the past. Regards Peter !
Astronomers have released a new "baby picture" of the universe. The all-sky image draws on nine years' worth of data from a now-retired spacecraft dubbed the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP).
