Any theory of quantum gravity is going to have to grapple with some weird time stuff.
The Big Bounce theory was once thought impossible. But two physicists have just resurrected it.
Of the 2 trillion galaxies contained within our observable Universe, 94% are already forever beyond our reach
So-called “information realism” has some surprising implications
