      Hi Jacob. I’m afraid I don’t know a great deal about it. I know that theres strong evidence that the universe is expanding but I don’t know too much detail about the evidence for what it’s expanding from!

      do you know about this picture that has been taken of the early universe? It’s called the ‘cosmic microwave background’ and it contains lot’s of information about how the universe came into being. I know that they’re in the process of taking an even more ‘High Definition’ version of the cosmic microwave background which should give us some more clues. It’s an interesting area 🙂

      The question started with Hi Jack so I think Jack’s answer is more than sufficient 😉
