The Singularities of Gravitational Collapse and Cosmology

Hello.

https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/pdf/10.1098/rspa.1970.0021The Singularities of Gravitational Collapse and Cosmology

The above paper by Hawking and Penrose is presented in the form of a mathematical proof. To my knowledge the predictions it makes about the initial cosmological singularity have not been tested by experiment, so there is no data or body that evidence that might rule it out. However, I was wondering if the members of PF can cite any examples of other theoretical proofs in cosmology and/or astrophysics that

Many thanks in advance.
