JaLinda Dunovant, The Transformative Power of the Arts
JaLinda Dunovant believes that the world would be a better place if more people could experience the transformative power of the arts. This is because Dunovant's involvement in arts and culture activities has had a profound impact on her own life. Since arriving at Penn two years ago, the rising junior from Staten Island, N.Y. has acted in an African American Arts Alliance production called "The Story," worked on costume design for the production of "Aida," and gained a deep appreciation of Phi

4.2 Evidence for a big bang

Having interpreted the redshift as indicating a recessional speed proportional to distance, one may extrapolate into the future to predict how the positions of the galaxies will evolve with time. One can also run the sequence backwards, so to speak, to discuss what their positions were in the past. Clearly, at former times the galaxies were closer to each other.

But not only that. Because of the proportional relationship between speed and distance (Equation 6), at a certain time in the
