No Big Bang? Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning

Interesting, but I want to see how it predicts the 2.7k microwave background before I get too excited.

In addition to not predicting a Big Bang singularity, the new model does not predict a “big crunch” singularity, either. In general relativity, one possible fate of the universe is that it starts to shrink until it collapses in on itself in a big crunch and becomes an infinitely dense point once again.
