Was The Big Bang Actually A Big Bounce?

When it comes to how our universe was created, you may have it all wrong. Most kids learn that the universe started after a Big Bang, but the Big Bounce theory may, in fact, be more likely. Physicists believe it is quite probable that our universe was created as a result of the collapse of an older universe, rather than from a single point of broken physics, as the Big Bang theory suggests. The Big Bounce theory is not new; it was first proposed in 1922. At that time, however, scientists struggled to understand how a universe could have formed from a collapsed one. Researchers at the Imperial College London recently suggested that quantum mechanics saved the collapsed universe from destruction. We've collected some awesome videos on this topic. Watch them now to learn more.
