Stephen Hawking Claims To Know What Happened Before The Big Bang

Stephen Hawking Claims To Know What Happened Before The Big Bang

Scientists still can't for sure determine what triggered The Big Bang and the beginning of the universe.

"There was nothing around before the Big, Big Bang", British physicist Stephen Hawking said during a TV talk show aired Sunday on National Geographic Channel, propounding his theory on what happened before the universe came into existence.

Hawking's theory lies upon the assumption that the universe has no boundaries.

"In order terms, the Euclidian space-time is a closed surface without end, like the surface of the Earth".

Mr Hawking replied: "Nothing was around before the big, big bang". Some of the most strident opposition to this theory comes not from other scientists but from theologists and lay-believers who pose the question (not necessarily in as many words): "If there was something that exploded during the Big Bang, where did that something come from?"

During the show, Hawking said that time was present in a bent state amid the almost infinitely small quantum foam of the singularity before the Big Bang.

Sunday liquor sales officially begin in Indiana
People streamed into grocery and liquor stores across IN on Sunday as they were able to buy carryout alcohol for the first time. The Nick's Liquors chain in northwestern in is choosing to stay closed on Sundays, saying it didn't expect a big jump in sales.

He said that it wasn't the Big Bang that caused something to be created out of nothing.

Essentially, just like the way that "south" can't exist south of the South Pole because every southern direction leads to that point, time can't exist "before" the Big Bang, because this is the point that time and space are expanding outward from. Those events are not defined, as they couldn't be measured and there's no way for them to be measured.

While it is a commonly known theory that the so-called Big Bang - the moment something impossibly tiny began to grow - brought about the universe billions of years ago and is still shaping it now, what has intrigued scientists more seems to be what was there before the "explosion" when there was supposed to be nothing.

"The universe will evolve from the Big Bang, completely independently of what it was like before", Hawking had stated.

But astronomers and astrophysicists can take what they know about how physics work and make some pretty educated explanations about what likely happened during, after, and also before the Big Bang jumpstarted the universe, which then expanded outward into the cosmic vastness of space we know today.

The Big Bang Theory is one of the main explanations for the origin of the universe. Filmed at New York City's the American Museum of Natural History, the show features Tyson interviewing famous people from the field of science and popular culture.
