Based on the assumption that some apparent properties of the observable universe are accurate at a reasonable level of approximation, a tentative is made to independently derive the values of the baryon density parameter, the Hubble constant, the cosmic microwave background temperature and the helium mass fraction. The obtained values are in excellent agreement with those given by the most recent observational data.

    A basic fundamental analysis indicates that any radiation emitted by remote objects, such as galaxies and quasars, has only a limited age in comparison with that of the Universe. The radiation emitted by such objects thousands of millions of years ago is the oldest one that can be detected. Any...

    Before the universe there was nothing. No time, no matter, no energy. One second after the universe sprang into existence in the big bang there was an ever expanding fog of super-energised fundamental particles and fight. A little while later, around 300,000 years, the energy released had cooled...

It notes that observations of the cosmic microwave background show speckles with the size associated with a flat surface, suggesting that the universe has almost no curvature. It is said that the visible universe serves as a sub-region of a bigger...
