Astronomy Quote of the Day

“If the rate of expansion one second after the Big Bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million, it would have recollapsed before it reached its present size. On the other hand, if it had been greater by a part in a million, the Universe would have expanded too rapidly for stars and planets to form.” Stephen Hawking
