“THE idea once seemed so elegant and simple: The universe began with a bang. Wherever astronomers pointed their telescopes, the distant galaxies were shooting away like stellar shrapnel. And permeating the space in between was a uniform glow of radiation — surely the afterflash of an ancient explosion.

But the theoretical paradise was not to last.”
