What happened before the big bang?
Stephen hawking, one of the famous physicists has an answer on what happened before the big bang? We know the big bang expansion has begun 13.8 billion years ago. All matter in the universe emitted from a peculiarity to create the cosmos. But what occurred before then?
Hawking says, ‘nothing was around before the Big Bang’. Instead, time and space existed in a ‘bent state’ that was distorted along another dimension.
He says, the formation of big bang regard as time in light, because the event broke down the laws of physics. This latest science news implies anything that went before it can’t connect to our understanding of time and existence.
What shows hawking theory
In a recent interview he explains his theory using Einstein’s space-time concept, which measure our earth four dimensions. The shape of the Earth has a similarity for the curved state of the space-time continuum.
According to the hawking theory, the history of the universe is not a level line but a four-dimensional curved object. Similar to the surface of the Earth, but comes with other two dimensions.
He said, Imaginary and normal space-time begins at Earth’s South Pole, a point where the normal laws of physics hold. There is nothing south of the South Pole, so there was nothing around before the Big Bang.
As per Hawking, before the Big Bang, the universe was contracted and condensed to an incredibly dense ball of heat and energy. Inside this spot, the laws of physics and time them break off the function, and time did not exist.
If we move back in time from the Big Bang, the ‘arrow’ of time shrinks infinitely as the universe becomes smaller, never reaching a clear starting point.
Hawking said that before the Big Bang, time was bent. It always reaches closer to nothing, but didn’t become anything.
Essentially, Big Bang never produced something from nothing. It appears that way from mankind’s point of perspective.
