Moreover, the Big Bang model would tend to produce a cosmos whose composition and density would vary widely from place to place and whose overall geometry would be warped or curved.
In 1980, Guth amended the Big Bang theory to account for these discrepancies.
The Big Bang model combined with inflation matches several important observations, including the detailed structure of the radiation called the cosmic microwave background, which is left over from the universe's birth.

But the standard Big Bang model doesn't yet supply all the answers that researchers would like to have.
