You are revising a paper on the creation of the universe and discover that you have forgotten to add quotation marks to the words, phrases, and sentences you quoted directly from sources and to include citations with page numbers. Luckily, you are able to find a copy of your source, The Five Ages of the Universe by Fred Adams and Greg Laughlin, and locate the page with your quoted material. Read the paragraph from the original source. Then, add the missing quotation marks around words, phrases, or sentences quoted directly from the original and include page number citations in the examples that follow. Consult your handbook for correct citation style.
Imagine what it would be like to witness the beginning of time. If we could experience these first defining moments, if our eyes could observe the microscopic events taking place with blinding speed, what would we see? Let's pick up the story just as the universe bursts into existence. We would first notice that the universe is expanding and cooling at a fantastic rate. During the first 10 seconds or so, the universe expands so fast that adjacent points of space rush away from each other at incomprehensible speeds. During this brief period of counterintuitive behavior, a portion of the universe the size of a small dot (.) inflates to become larger than the entire observable universe of today. The expansion soon slows down to more reasonable subliminal speeds, but continues onward nonetheless (Adams & Laughlin,1999, pp. 3-4).
