History and Philosophy of Physics. Based on an invited talk at the 7th International Conference on the History of General Relativity (HGR7), "Einstein and the Changing World View of Physics, 1905-2005", held at Tenerife, Canary Islands in 2005 "The goal of this report is to provide an up to date account of results on the quantum nature of the big bang, obtained in loop quantum cosmology.
