Wiki's a good starting point--then check some of the sources listed. Any good basic text on Big Bang theory should get you started.

Took that in college, too. What would you like to know?

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
