Universe Didn't Explode Into Being, It Kinda … Froze

Physicists are rewriting the origins of everything


Melbourne researchers believe they may be on the brink of rewriting the history of the universe.

A paper being published in a US physics journal suggests it may be possible to view "cracks" in the universe that would support the theory of quantum graphity—considered to be the holy grail of physics.

The team of researchers from the University of Melbourne and RMIT say that, instead of thinking of the start of the universe as being a big bang, we should imagine it as a cooling of water into ice.
