Penrose: WMAP Shows Evidence of ‘Activity’ Before Big Bang

22nd November 2010

Have scientists seen evidence of time before the Big Bang, and perhaps a verification of the idea of the cyclical universe?

One of the great physicists of our time, Roger Penrose from the University of Oxford, has published a new paper saying that the circular patterns seen in the WMAP mission data on the Cosmic Microwave Background suggest that space and time perhaps did not originate at the Big Bang but that our universe continually cycles through a series of “aeons,” and we have an eternal, cyclical cosmos.

His paper also refutes the idea of inflation, a widely accepted theory of a period of very rapid expansion immediately following the Big Bang.
