Except for the depressing hipster part, looking younger is a byproduct of bangs.
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.

Instead, the cosmos has no defined beginning and could be thousands of times older than the 15 to 20 billion years indicated by most Big Bang models.
Burbidge and his colleagues assert that their theory, known as quasi-steady state cosmology (QSSC), recently predicts the temperature of the cosmic microwave background radiation, a feat that the Big Bang model can't as yet accomplish.
And unlike a favored version of the Big Bang, QSSC can explain the amount of primordial deuterium without having to invoke the notion of dark matter - hypothetical material that doesn't emit light and is thought to consist of exotic particles rather than ordinary protons and neutrons.
