An accidental discovery by Robert Wilson and Arno Penzias in 1964 changed the entire landscape of cosmology and established the concept of a big bang as a keystone in our understanding of how the universe came into existence.
During the late 17th century, scientists were embroiled in a debate about the fundamental nature of light – whether it was a particle or wave. Sir Isaac Newton was a strong advocate of the theory that light was made of particles known as “corpuscles”.
Einstein's general theory of relativity supports standard cosmological models quite successfully. However, when volumes, energy densities and distances approach the Planck scale, general relativity breaks down. Currently astrophysicists are interested in formulating a theory of quantum cosmology, which attempts to reconcile post-Big Bang quantum conditions with Einstein’s general relativistic principles.
About 1,000 years ago, a medieval Arab scholar by the name of Ibn al-Haytham managed to successfully change the prevailing perceptions of light and how the eye functions - hence revolutionizing the study of optics. His work helped change science around the world and is known today as the 'Book of Optics'.
