What happened before the Big bang?
Also was the Big bang the rebirth of the universe or was it the
creation of the universe.
Good question! Really no one knows. One idea is that the
universe cycles: there's a Big Bang, the universe expands
for a while but then starts to contract because of gravity
and collapses to form another Big Bang.
