Quote of the Day: A Universe Created Out Of Nothing
Arno Penzias - American physicist
“Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, one with the very delicate balance needed to provide exactly the conditions required to permit life, and one which has an underlying (one might say ‘supernatural’) plan.” (h/t y-origins.com)
German-born Arno Penzias won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1978. Along with Robert Woodrow Wilson, Dr. Penzias discovered cosmic microwave background radiation, the radio remnant of the Big Bang.
