If the universe had formed just a tiny bit differently–if gravity were fractionally stronger or weaker, if the expansion had proceeded just a little more slowly or swiftly–then there might never have been stable elements to make you and me and the ground we stand on.

In either case, with the slightest tweaking of the numbers the universe as we know and need it would not be here. It is enough to know that in a single cracking instant we were endowed with a universe that was vast–at least a hundred billion light-years across, according to the theory, but possibly any size up to infinite–and perfectly arrayed for the creation of stars, galaxies, and other complex systems.

So protons are exceedingly microscopic, to say the very least. Tryon of Columbia University once put it: Even the notion of the Big Bang is quite a recent one.

We learn what the material world is like from the smallest quark to the largest galaxy and at all the levels in between.

Inflation theory explains the ripples and eddies that make our universe possible.

There is no space for it to occupy, no place for it to be. Would recommand it for any science enthousiasts or as kickstater to make you love science. It seems impossible that you could get something from nothing, but the fact that once there was nothing and now there is a bdyson is evident proof that you can. We all have gaps in our grasp of the history of the World, Science, Nature, the Universe and wotnot.
