April 2002:

Princeton physicist Paul Steinhardt and Neil Turok of Cambridge University proposed a new theory of the universe that suggests that space and time may not have begun in a big bang, but may have always existed in an endless cycle of expansion and rebirth. The theory in an article published April 25 in an online edition of Science.
