Was the Big Bang really the Big BOUNCE?


It was the discovery that shook the world of physics - back in March scientists using the Bicep2 telescope in Antarctica found evidence for the period after the Big Bang.
Since that discovery, however, questions have arisen not only on its validity, but also its implications for science as a whole.
And now if might force us to reconsider how the universe formed, with some suggesting the cosmos didn’t start with a Big Bang but rather a ‘Big Bounce Researchers say that our universe may have begun as a Big Bounce rather than just a Big Bang. It suggests that our universe didn¿t necessarily begin from a singularity, but rather 'rebounded' from the collapse of a previous universe, sort of like how a spring (shown) becomes harder to compress as it is squashed
The theory was published in Physical Review Letters by a team of Chinese and Canadian researchers, and follows up on previous work from other scientists, notably Martin Bojowald of Pennstlvania State University in June 2007.
The Big Bounce theory states that our universe didn’t necessarily begin from a singularity, but rather ‘rebounded’ from the collapse of a previous universe.
And evidence for this apparently exists in the data from the Bicep2 experiment-read more
