EPOCHS OF THE UNIVERSE MISSION BRIEFING
You are about to embark on the journey of all journeys. You will explore and experience the very history of space and time itself. All the way from the dawn of creation, through present day. Witness the birth of matter. Watch the first photon of light flicker into existence. Above all, see our universe form. Traverse nine unique and fascinating eras, or epochs, of the universe. Now, you will understand how the vast cosmos we know today came to be.
Not to mention, to successfully travel across time you have been given a CosmoControl. And, this cosmic remote control allows you to pause, resume, fast-forward and rewind time. At each mind-blowing stage, you pause spacetime to observe. As a result, you will learn and understand your own existence.
Finally, each unique epoch presents separate findings. And, you receive helpful data on:

EPOCHS OF THE UNIVERSE: MISSION 00
First of all, your journey begins at the creation of everything, the big bang. At this moment, our entire universe is born. Currently, at an age of zero seconds, an entire universe exists in an infinitely small point. However, you quickly find that this universe is not one you are at all familiar with. In fact, it’s a frightening, dark realm of everything and nothing.
EPOCHS OF THE UNIVERSE: MISSION 01
Suddenly, you emerge just after the big bang. Actually, a mere fraction of a second later. In fact, a time scale so small, the human mind is unable to comprehend. Now, during this initial planck unit of time, the universe has barely grown. Furthermore, data and conditions tell you that the universe is still a catastrophic world of extreme highs and lows. With temperatures trillions of times that of our Sun, you timidly observe this second epoch.
EPOCHS OF THE UNIVERSE: MISSION 02
GRAND UNIFIED THEORY ERA
Currently, the universe is undergoing extreme changes. Temperatures begin cooling ever so slightly. As a result, gravity and the strong nuclear force now break off to form individual forces. However, this cosmic breakup generates tremendous energy, charging all existing matter in the universe. But, what happens to the universe next will shock you!
