According to the Big Bang Theory, around 14 billion years ago our universe was a single point. That single point had zero volume and infinite density. When that point exploded it created the universe. But why would this certain explosion create and not destroy? All explosions we know of destroy.
- Edward Hubble discovered that galaxies and their stars are moving away from us. He discovered this when he observed some galaxies’ stars were purple while others were red. As the stars moved away they took on a reddish hue. The stars were turning red rather than purple; therefore the galaxies were moving away from us.
- In 1948, a scientist by the name of George Gamow came up with another idea supporting the Big Bang. He stated that after the explosion forming the universe, a radiation surplus should have existed. This radiation surplus should have spread evenly across the universe.
- George Gamow was right. In 1965 two scientists by the names of Robert Wilson and Arno Penzias accidentally found certain radiation waves. This radiation, called cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR), didn’t radiate from a single source, but rather came from all around. It was evenly distributed around the universe.
- The hydrogen/helium concentrations in space. If indeed the universe was eternal the hydrogen levels should have been completely converted into helium. However the hydrogen/helium concentrations in space comply with the calculations of the hydrogen/helium concentrations of the Big Bang.
