This is probably dumb, but is there any way that simple magnetism could play a role in the expansion of space? That somehow there is a polarization, neg-neg, pos-pos, in regions of space, that we can't detect but which could cause parts of space to perpetually repel other parts, thereby causing expansion?
I don't know enough about magnetism (it's not my <i>field!</i>) to say if that is possible or not. <img src="/images/icons/wink.gif" /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#ff0000">_______________________________________________<br /></font><font size="2"><em>SpeedFreek</em></font> </p> </div>

Are you being intentionaly obtuse?<br /><br />The term Big Bang was given to the Theory by one of it's opponents. <br /><br />The theory dosn't imply the explosion of anything into already exsisting space. Nor does it imply anything other than the expansion it describes. <br /><br />If we can measure the universe and see all the other galexies moving away from us at an increasing rate, we can inferr that they were all much closer together in the past, to the point that they all came from one 'Quark Soup' of sorts.
