How was the Universe born?
Australasian Science on the birth of the Universe. As you can see, I also got the cover. Unfortunately, you have to pay to subscribe, but I think this appears in many Australian schools. Anyway, here's the abstract
Modern cosmology tells us that the universe as we know it arose 13.7 billion years ago in the fiery birth of the Big Bang, but our understanding of the laws of physics is incomplete and we are currently unable to answer the questions of where the universe actually came from. Cosmologists have many ideas, ranging from the reasonably strange to the extremely outlandish.
