What was the Big Bang and what happened before it? Scientists from the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw have attempted to answer the question. Within the framework of loop quantum gravity they have put forward a new theoretical model, which might prove useful for validating hypotheses about events prior to the Big Bang. This achievement is one of the few models describing the full Einstein's theory and not merely its greatly simplified version.To read the rest of the article, click here.
"Again I think this will turn out to be wrong. Loop quantum gravity like string theory is in a very incomplete state and any argument based on it is very dubious." -- Jack Sarfatti
