      As theories go, I thing it’s a pretty good one, but I’d hardly call myself an expert – I’m much better with questions about muscles and bones!

      Hi Daimena,
      Im a big fan of the theory. But two things I find very curious:

      – Unfortunately it is not possible to know if there was anything before the big bang and even if that makes sense as a question.

      – We are not really sure how the Universe will end. Either with a “Dark Whimper” (as matter continues to fly apart and become more and more distant from each other). Or with a “Crunch” as all mass comes back together again in giant black hole.

      Neither sound particularly appealing.. although the second could be a pre-requisite to another “Bang” which is maybe how the universe actually behaves!

      What do you think?

      Hi Daimena!

      I think that at present that’s the best theory we have. What do you think?
