Interesting how often the "new" theories set forth by science have
been around in various science fictional forms for decades.  I know I
have at least a couple of novels on my shelves that use the Big
Bang/Big Collapse cyclical model of the universe that are 25-30 years
old.  Rather than a "new theory", this seems to me more like a model
that adapts some new data to an old theory.  But I suppose that
wouldn't be as catchy for the headline writers.
