The Big Bang Theory

I didn’t know much about the Big bang Theory so when I went to do research the Big Bang theory was explained to me very simply. First off the Big Bang happened for three main reasons: the universe was once very hot, the universe is expanding, and the universe used to be very dense. Correct me if I am wrong, but basically the universe was so hot and dense that there were thousands of collisions going on between protons, neutrons, and electrons and sometimes the protons and neutrons stuck together creating atoms and then these atoms stuck together to create molecules. Then as these collisions continued the universe cooled down and became less dense, allowing masses to collide less and to find their place in the universe. Now one of the things that I found very interesting is that we spend so much more time trying to figure out how we were created, but there were some questions posed by this lesson published at the Rochester Institute of Technology that were about what is going to happen to the solar system and the universe in general in the future that really startled me and were scary to think about especially this question; “Will the universe collapse again, or expand forever?” If anyone has come by any studies that have explored any answers or explanations to this question let me know I would be very interested and it would be an interesting topic.

I found a very interesting video with some really cool sounds that explains what happened as a result of the big bang that puts the speed of the creation of the universe into perspective.

  1. I believe I read somewhere a while back when I took Astro 102 that eventually the universe will eventually grow so large and be so stretched out that it would essentially reset itself back to the way it started. If the expansion of the universe could be compared to the process of stretching out a rubber band, a return to the big bang could be represented as perhaps the band being stretched so far out, then resetting itself back the way it was. If I could remember where I got the information, I’d share it with you, but I do think I remember reading as well that this process would take over a trillion years.
