Cosmology Is Awesome

Via Jay Lake I have discovered a wonderful new development in cosmology. As this report explains, Nikodem Poplawski of Indiana University believes that he has found a new take on relativity that not only gets rid of the troublesome concept of singularities, but also shows that our universe must have formed inside a black hole, and provides an explanation for the origin of time. As cosmological speculation goes, that’s truly awesome. Of course it is still speculation right now, and Poplawski’s ideas need to be pored over by minds far more powerful than mine, but this sort of thing sure makes cosmology fun.
