In a manuscript of Albert Einstein dated back to 1931, which had been neglected by researchers of his work, is found an alternative proposal for the creation of the Universe. The renowned scientist suggested that instead of the Big Bang, the Universe was expanding continuously and eternally, a theory supported by the British physicist Fred Hoyle two decades later. The Big Bang theory began to flourish when the American astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered in the 1920s that the universe expands. Since the Universe today is greater than yesterday, logic dictates that once in the history of was infinitesimally small, and therefore infinitely dense and active. However, in the 1940s Hoyle argued that it would be mathematically acceptable a scenario in which the universe expands eternally, but keeps its density constant. For that to happen, new matter needs to be created constantly in order to form new structures such as galaxies and stars that will be occupying the space. As the universe would be always infinite, its size will not vary with the expansion. Read More at via Learning Mind.
