Big Bang theory could be debunked by Large Hadron Collider (£) Scientists at Cern could prove the controversial theory of ‘rainbow gravity’ which suggests that the universe stretches back into time infinitely, with no Big Bang. The detection of miniature black holes by the Large Hadron Collider could prove the existence of parallel universes and […]
