From Here to Eternity
Astronomers peer back into the past with the world’s largest telescopes. They see billions of galaxies, and they find indications of evolution and youth. Before the first galaxies, there were the Dark Ages. And before then, the Big Bang. But there is much of the universe that astronomers cannot probe. He will describe the universe that we see, and speculate about the universe we cannot see. He will describe the past, with some confidence, and he will speculate about the future, as perceived by cosmologists, under the assumption that humanity survives to reap the potentially infinite rewards of what to all intents and purposes is an infinite, or at least an inconceivably large, universe.
