The Big Bounce?

Modern physics has a problem: It can't model what happened during the first few picoseconds of the universe. When they do the math using their current models pesky little infinities rear their infinite little heads and the whole endeavor quickly goes to hell (or rather, infinity) in a hand basket. Now, if you're like most reasonable people you're probably not going to sweat that first one millionth of one millionth of a second (0.000 000 000 001 seconds). Luckily physics seems to attract unreasonable (or at least anal retentive) types who insist it's important to know such things. Seems they have come up with something that might just work.
