    When did black holes first started to appear in the universe?

This effectively made cooling of gas slow and...

    What Is Beyond The Observable Universe?

    Orion, I already answered the questions. You need to read again and attempt to understand what I have previously posted. Also, a theory doesn't deal with "ifs." You need to first understand what a theory means. There are no universes. Period. End of story.
