Bang Bang: What’s beyond the universe

The Big Bang was hypothesized in 1931 by Georges Lemaître, to explain the expanding universe.  The cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR),  discovered almost 50 years ago, shows the leftover evidence of the first few moments, 13.75 billion years ago, when the universe was tiny and hot and exploded to form the universe that we know today.  The radiation is a fingerprint that was long thought to be random.  But the latest satellite data shows circular patterns that point to processes beyond the Big Bang.

A few theories provide intriguing and very cool ideas to explain it. One says that this universe doesn’t have a beginning and end, but that it’s a cycling universe that explodes, expands to become infinitely large and flat, and repeats.  Another says its evidence of the multiverse, where our universe is one of infinitely many universes.  The patterns are due to collisions with other universes.
