Big Bang Theory Explosion Process

Big Bang TheoryBig Bang Theory explosion process has been considered as a study in Science. Science has been one of the biggest and main character of the development of the universe including planet earth and all the other planets for thousands of years. The life of the universe has been studied over and over the years by professional scientists to teach the people how to understand the beginning of our universe and how it got evolved. As a scientific fact, the origin beginning of our universe started with the most popular theory in astronomy known as the Big Bang Theory.

After many observations, science believes that the Big Bang theory is a violent explosion that happened in the universe that led to a movement of the galaxies away from each other in an extremely high density, force, and temperature. Besides all these studies throughout the years, our curiosity is still questioning us how did our universe begin, how old is our universe, and how did the Big Bang theory affect our life.

About 13.7 billion years ago, the space was empty. A very small ball with infinite density and intense high heat temperature was compressed from all of the particles creating a strong light in space. The universe started after the creation of this strong light that led to a tremendous explosion known as the Big Bang theory. The explosion filed the empty space with small atoms and particles that were moving away from each other in a very high-speed and temperature.

In 1929, a great physician and space scientist, Sir Edwin Hubble, established the origin and the beginning of the Big Bang theory. Hubble observed throughout the years that the universe was expanding continuously after the first huge explosion. Hubble also discovered that the galaxies in the universe were expanding and moving in all directions. Astronomers exposed that after the explosion, the universe started to cool off while still expanding.

In addition to the great and rich discoveries that were made by the father of the Big Bang theory, Sir Edwin Hubble, a designed telescope was named after him. The Hubble telescope provided the astronomers and the scientists more information about the elements that existed in the universe, as well as it helped them in understanding the galaxies and stars even more.

In addition to the explanations, discoveries, and understanding of the speed and movement of galaxies in different directions, there are further studies and evidences for the Big Bang. A noise of extraterrestrial origin was discovered by Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson while detecting microwaves from outer space. It was clear for those two astronomers to see that the noise was not emanating from one location only, but instead, it was coming from several different directions at once. It was obvious that the noises they heard were radiations coming from the farthest reaches of our universe. Their discovery lent much credence and attention to the Big Bang theory.

Recently, NASAs COBE satellite detected cosmic microwaves that were coming from the outer reaches and directions of the universe. The microwaves that NASAs COBE was able to detect were remarkably uniform, which means they illustrated and defined the homogeneity of the early stages of our universe.

After the explosion, the universe was extremely hot due to the combination of particles of both matter and antimatter moving apart in all directions. Due to the developed science nowadays, studies show that once both materials hit each other in a strong way, they collide and destroy one another producing pure energy. After the particles were combined, they suddenly began to expand and started creating our universe as it moved outwards. Various particles were formed by the big bang explosion especially atoms such as hydrogen, along with helium and traces of lithium. Later on, these several elements were merged together through gravity creating giant clouds that formed galaxies and starts.

Eventually, the Big Bang theory and its explosion process is known as a scientific theory that consists mostly of observations, studies, and explanations of the past and present states of the universe. In other words, it is mainly focusing on the early development of the universe. Our understanding of the science of the Big Bang theory will never be complete because there are still discoveries and studies going on every day. The Big Bang theory is mainly accepted within the scientific community due to the diversity of thoughts, religions, and backgrounds of all people.
