Ask Me Science - Out of the White Hole: A Holographic Origin for the Big Bang

Posted by erik on Sun, Aug 17 2014

Dear Science friends,

We are happy to announce the start of our Ask Me Science (AMS) series where we invite outstanding researchers to answer questions on their newly published papers. The rules are simple:

  1. Ask something related to the paper or the research presented
  2. Be nice

The beginning of our series is made possible by Robert Mann, Professor of Physics & Applied Mathematics at Waterloo, and Niayesh Afshordi, Associate Professor of Physics & Astronomy at Waterloo and they will answer your questions on their recent paper, written with Razieh Pourhasan, Out of the White Hole: A Holographic Origin for the Big Bang. The topic is featured in the current issue of Scientific American and made it onto the cover.


Robert, Niayesh and Razieh present in their paper an alternative explanation for the origin of the universe known as the Big Bang. In their discussed model they avoid singularities, which would have lead to infinite densities and temperatures and the break down of the law of physics at that point of time.


We hope you enjoy this unique opportunity to ask them questions and get answers from real experts.
