Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, November 20, 2022, In : Knowledge/Wisdom 

WITH all the new discoveries being made as astronomers and cosmologists work together in conjunction with the Hubble and James Webb space telescopes, we keep creeping closer, day by day to answering the supreme questions surrounding what our universe is all about, and what came before it.
