    When looking into the night skies, we only see a tiny fraction of our galaxy. Each star is an individual sun with it's own solar system. Considering there are more individual suns out in the cosmos than are grains of sand on earth is a lot to take in. According to Stephan Hawkin, our galaxy is one of the oldest in the cosmos created by The Big Bang about 14 million years ago. With the vastness of our cosmos, would it be possible to theorize that there was more than one Big Bang happening at differnt times?

    As I understand it the big bang is the beginning of matter.  Not sure that can happen more than once.

    It's possible that our universe is just one of an infinite number.

    Imagine if you were looking at a vast nothingness, outside our universe, and you watched a Big Bang occur... you would be watching a universe grow and expand, but there would still be an infinitely large area of nothingness outside of that. It could be that our universe is just like one 'star' in the multiverse.

    Of course, unless we can travel outside of our universe, there isn't much we can do to test theories like that.

    Yes, but...

    The big bang created the things that we call energy and matter today, as well as the laws that govern our universe.  If another big bang occurs it will create another universe, but this one is already here.  There could theoretically be an infinite (whatever that means) number of big bangs going on at the same time, but not in our universe.

    Another option (looking less and less likely) is that our universe will one day collapse to a singularity such as the one that the big bang came from.  Should that occur, perhaps another big bang could occur with at least similar mass, energy and laws.  Maybe even producing a Waul Pingert creature with tentacles instead of arms and legs and that ask questions on PubHages.
