Looping Universes

Scientists have developed a theory about the conditions in the universe before the Big Bang which actually provides testable predictions. Scientists have for years been fascinated by the, for want of a better phrase, "bouncing" universe. Infinite collapse and expand cycles appeals to the aesthete in them, I guess. Unfortunately every previous test for this scenario (that I know of) has failed, so I'm not holding out a lot of hope for this one either.

Still, it'd be neat to know, either way.

I was taught the theory was called the "oscillating universe" theory, but I called it the "cyclical universe" one.

It's apparently the basis of the Marvel Comics universe, because Galactus is the last survivor of the previous universe...
