Comments: 6 pages, invited talk at the conference "Where Cosmology and Fundamental Physics Meet" at IUFM, Marseille, June 23 - 26, 2003

Quantum gravity has matured over the last decade to a theory which can tell in a precise and explicit way how cosmological singularities of general relativity are removed. A branch of the universe "before" the classical big bang is obtained which is connected to ours by quantum evolution through a region around the singularity where the classical space-time dissolves. We discuss the basic mechanism as well as applications ranging to new phenomenological scenarios of the early universe expansion, such as an inflationary period.

This is a rather readable paper at the cutting edge of a theory of everything (TOE). Actually it's more like a foot in the door than a toe.
