The Origins of the Universe: Current Knowledge and Frontiers While there is no doubt that science’s knowledge of the universe’s origins retains gaps and avenues of future inquiry, cosmologists have constructed a detailed and functional model of those origins. This standard model of the universe’s beginnings is able to predict and confirm the actual universe around us with surprisingly accuracy, making it a powerful tool for understanding the nature of the cosmos. However, as this model has only been developed in detail in the last few decades, there are still significant gaps in our understanding of the universe’s origins that researchers are currently probing, as well as extremely speculative realms of unanswered questions. Since the late...The end:
.....he standard model of the Big Bang has proven incredibly effective and descriptive of the development of the universe from its first moments until the present day. The standard model is a theory that has been confirmed through repeated experimentation and observation, and represents cosmology’s deepest gaze into the origins of the universe itself.
