The Big Bang never happened and our universe may have no beginning and no end, suggests a new theory by physicists, including one of Indian-origin.
The theory applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity and may also account for dark matter and dark energy.
The widely accepted age of the universe, as estimated by general relativity, is 13.8 billion years. In the beginning, everything in existence is thought to have occupied a single infinitely dense point, or singularity. Only after this point began to expand in a "Big Bang" did the universe officially begin.
Although the Big Bang singularity arises directly and unavoidably from the mathematics of general relativity, some scientists see it as problematic because the math can explain only what happened immediately after - not at or before - the singularity, 'Phys.org' reported.
Ahmed Farag Ali at Benha University and the Zewail City of Science and Technology, in Egypt and coauthor Saurya Das at the University of Lethbridge in Canada, have shown that the Big Bang singularity can be resolved by their new model in which the universe has no beginning and no end.
Their work, published in the journal Physics Letters B, is based on ideas by theoretical physicist David Bohm in the 1950s, who explored replacing classical geodesics (the shortest path between two points on a curved surface) with quantum trajectories.
Researchers applied these Bohmian trajectories to an equation developed in the 1950s by physicist Amal Kumar Raychaudhuri at Presidency University in Kolkata.
In addition to not predicting a Big Bang singularity, the new model does not predict a "big crunch" singularity either.
The model avoids singularities because of a key difference between classical geodesics and Bohmian trajectories, researchers said.
Researchers explain that the quantum corrections can be thought of as a cosmological constant term (without the need for dark energy) and a radiation term.
These terms keep the universe at a finite size, and therefore give it an infinite age.
And in other reports...Climate has been changing since...
Its an old theory called, Steady State
Whether it is a Big Bang or a bunch of individual mini-bangs the scientists are still left with the same problem — how can matter be created on its own out of nothing?
Where is an example of matter being produced by itself that is not a derivative of other matter, e.g. supernova?
Nevertheless I don’t fault scientists for not being able to explain where matter came from. I don’t think it is possible to know that through scientific means while living on Earth.
The Big Bang is just a faith based religion.
Sooooooo, the science “experts” reeeeeeally have no clue what they’re doing after all, huh?
“...including one of Indian-origin.”
Why was that clause necessary?
That used to be called “Steady State” which term really only came into use as a response to the new crazy “Big Bang” theory. I remember the science pubs presenting the views as being both tenable theories.
But, . . . But, . . . But, . . what about it being settled science? We already voted!
Why was that clause necessary?
Fair warning in case v.2.0 of the theory involves elephants standing rump to rump on top of a giant tortise?
From the beginning there were several serious problems with the standard Big Bang theory, thus the reason Inflation theory was concocted. Plenty of problems and uncertainties with that as well.

More Grant MONEY will solve this dilemma...
I been watching for near 10 years. It exists.
Because its from an Indian media and India is proud of their scientific endeavors .thats all the reference meant. No big deal
Watch it on youtube with the laugh track disabled, you’ll think it’s the dumbest show on Earth. Because it’s a really really bad show. The laugh track is the only thing that makes it work.
There is if you are a minimally brained man of hubris.

Terry Prachett was my favorite writer...until he started advocating for assisted suicide. Talk about your slipper slope...
Now, I don’t experience the same joy reading his material. It’s like watching a movie with an actor who has gone full Trump-crazy in real life. (Click...off.)
This blew my third grade mind, when Sister Bernadette told us this.
