New Cosmological Origin Theory

The BBC reports that:

A joint UK-US team has put forward an alternative theory of cosmic evolution.

It proposes that the Universe undergoes cycles of “Big Bangs” and ’“Big Crunches,” meaning our Universe is merely a “child of the previous one.”

It challenges the conventional view of the cosmos, which observations show to be 12-14 billion years old.

Professor Paul Steinhardt of Princeton University, New Jersey explains that “this new theory suggests that there’s a continuous cycle of universes, with each a repeat of the last, but not an exact replica.”

Man, I should not be trying to grasp this kind of stuff just before bed…
