CMBR - Origins
The universe began 13.8 billion years ago, and the CMBR
dates back to about 400,000 years after the Big Bang.
/ the 1978 Nobel Prize in Physics./
Going backward in time is possible to reconstruct two scenario.
Modern astrophysicists say:
According to cosmological calculations the universe began
13.8 billion years ago from very hot state and this fact
was attested by CMBR.
(in the future the CMBR would go down to zero and then . . . )
Alternative scenario.
Going backward in time from the CMBR the temperature
was dropped to zero. From zero (T=0K) the Universe was started.
a) according to Thermodynamics, ''Entropy'' would change
the equilibrium zero state.
b) according to Quantum Theory, quantum fluctuations
would destroyed the equilibrium zero state.
Sooner or later astrophysicists view would come
to alternative scenario ( T=0K )
“The laws of physics as we understand them make
it eminently plausible that our universe arose from nothing –
– no space, no time, no particles, nothing that we now know of.”
/ Lawrence Krauss / ... ist-at-all
