One recently published study asked the question: What if the there was no Big Bang and the universe has been around since…forever?

“The Big Bang singularity is the most serious problem of general relativity because the laws of physics appear to break down there,” Ahmed Farag Ali, a physics lecturer at Benha University in Egypt, told Phys.org.
