Are you curious about the Big Bang theory, black holes and the multiverse?


If you thought the Big Bang theory was just an American television series featuring Leonard, Penny, Sheldon and the rest of the crew, you aren’t the only one (massive apologies to all the physicists out there!).

The Big Bang theory is actually the prevailing theory about the origin and evolution of our Universe (NASA 2012). It is also the topic of one of the most-read articles in the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (JCAP). Written by Razieh Pourhasan et al, the article is titled ‘Out of the white hole: a holographic origin for the Big Bang’.

Another popular article in this journal is the recently published ‘Black holes and the multiverse’ by Jaume Garriga et al.

If you are a budding astrophysicist, or an actual one (like Raj in the Big Bang Theory), check out the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics. It covers all aspects of cosmology and particle astrophysics and encompasses theoretical, observational and experimental areas as well as computation and simulation. Embrace your inner scientist and have a read! The latest issue available online is March 2016.

The journal is one-of-many physics journals available via the Institute of Physics (IoP) Electronic Journals database.  Here is a sample of titles to tempt you:
