Before the Big Bang

Cosmologist Lawrence M Krausss new book proclaims that science can explain the origin of our star-spangled cosmos

Why is there something, rather than nothing at all? It is, perhaps, the mystery of last resort. Scientists may theoretically be able to trace every galaxy back to a bump in the Big Bang, to complete the entire quantum roll call of particles and forces. But the question of why there was a Big Bang or any quantum particles at all was presumed to lie safely out of scientific bounds, in the realms of philosophy or religion.
