Forget about the Big Bang; welcome to the theory of the Big Bounce. Ten years ago, young Penn State professor Martin Bojowald, the author of this book, used the relatively new theory of loop quantum gravity to create a new model of the universe. This hypothesis, also called loop quantum cosmology (LQC), proposes a cyclic or oscillatory universe in which the first cosmological event was the result of the collapse of a previous universe. Once Before Time not only explains this breakthrough theory; it describes how it could reconstitute our view of existence.
