Endless Universe: Beyond the Big Bang -- Rewriting Cosmic History

Paul J. Steinhardt

world-renowned scientists current an audacious new imaginative and prescient of the cosmos that “steals the thunder from the large Bang theory.” —Wall highway Journal

The substantial Bang theory—widely considered as the prime cause of the foundation of the universe—posits that house and time sprang into being approximately 14 billion years in the past in a sizzling, increasing fireball of approximately countless density. during the last 3 many years the speculation has been many times revised to deal with such concerns as how galaxies and stars first shaped and why the growth of the universe is rushing up this present day. additionally, an evidence has but to be came across for what triggered the massive Bang within the first place.

In Endless Universe, Paul J. Steinhardt and Neil Turok, either distinctive theoretical physicists, current a daring new cosmology. Steinhardt and Turok “contend that what we predict of because the second of construction was once easily a part of an unlimited cycle of enormous collisions among our universe and a parallel global” (Discover). They recount the amazing advancements in astronomy, particle physics, and superstring conception that shape the root for his or her groundbreaking “Cyclic Universe” conception. in accordance with this conception, the massive Bang used to be now not the start of time however the bridge to a prior choked with ceaselessly repeating cycles of evolution, every one observed by means of the construction of latest subject and the formation of recent galaxies, stars, and planets.

Endless Universe offers solutions to longstanding issues of the large Bang version, whereas supplying a provocative new view of either the prior and the way forward for the cosmos.  it's a “theory which could resolve the cosmic secret” (USA Today).
