It’s important to remember that the Big Bang Theory is just that – a theory. A new quantum equation developed by Ahmed Farag Ali and Saurya Das, from the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, shows it to be possible that the universe has no beginning, or end, and is in fact eternal.

According to the Big Bang Theory, ‘everything in existence is thought to have occupied a single infinitely dense point’ called the singularity. ‘Only after this point began to expand in a “Big Bang” did the universe officially begin’, which gives the universe an age of 13.8 billion years. The problem with this theory is that it cannot explain what happened before, or during, the singularity.
This new work and equation examines older theories, attempts to explain dark energy and looks at hypothetical gravity particles called gravitons.
