Will Scientist ever be able to tell us what came before the Universe, Big Bang and how life came to be?

This should make all people with a working brain think.
I have family that prefers mundane complaining. Not all of them.
I think this should be significant to all of humanity.

Regarding will we figure out what came before the Big Bang, I don't think anyone knows the answer to that question.
But it would be very difficult, if not impossible, for science to determine what was what before the Big Bang.
Unless of course, if they were to determine it was, or is, a cycle that repeats, but never returns to nothingness.
Sometimes science does that.
It goes with what is conceivable or possible and then calls it a theory.
But that's not knowing.
Toss in one unimagined factor, and the whole thing falls apart.
Absolute nothing is the ultimate no-man's land.
It can't be measured, or even imagined.... time doesn't even exist.
You can't even say before the Big Bang because time doesn't exist before the Big Bang... so there is no before.. see what I mean?
Even if we could time travel, we can't go there, because there is no there.
We can't see its remnants, because there are none.
We can't measure it, because there is no duration or size to measure.
Nothing isn't even a what.. just an isn't.
About the only way to describe it is that it isn't everything that is.
That's a pretty inadequate description.
That's a little like trying to describe an Aardvark by saying it isn't a Corvette.
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting on that one.

As for how life began, we have a better shot at that.
We already have life right in front of us, so we have something to work with.
We also have the components in which life resides.
So, it's a maybe on that one... but I suspect there will always be a scientifically unanswered question there as well.

No I think he might explain to us all.
I would read it. Try.

I'm afraid he'd answer with a bunch of little laughing smiley guys.

You can ask Dr. Kaku Karven I emailed you the link.

The Multiverse theory is a little like what I'd mentioned.
It's a concept that works mathematically as an alternative to trying to deal with the inconceivable factor of nothingness.
They do the same when trying to imagine a boundary for the Universe. Passing beyond such a boundary is unimaginable, so they say that if you travel in one direction long enough, you end up back where you started; like on the surface of a bubble.
All of that works better for our linear thinking, but it doesn't make it so.
Is it possible?.. You bet.... but it also might be just a product of our inability to visualize a nothingness, or other options.
Even if the Bubble and Multiverse theory is correct, it doesn't explain their origins.
That puts us back to square one... What was there before the first of the Mutiverses?
If something is multiplying, entropy dictates that if you trace backward, you have to arrive at fewer and fewer somethings.
If that's the case, either some or several things sprang into being at once, or it started with one.
The question of what happened before the somethings is still unanswered... and unimaginable.
We may have to wait for something to change in our brains before we come close to that ultimate question of how it all started. To know a starting point, you have to be on the other side of it to be sure it is a starting point. For us, that place doesn't exist.

I think the odds are Kraven that the Milly way Galaxy and the Universe are part of a Multivese. Which means that Big Bangs are a common Phenomena.
If we are part of a Multiverse other Universes or (Dimensions) are coming into existence as I type. You have heard that some Physicist say, we are one of many bubbles. That new ones form all the time and wouldn't that be a Big Bang? What do think about that Kraven?
I know they can't prove the Multi Verse Theory yet but; they can not disprove it either.
