Transcript of The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory
Who was involved in the discovery of the Big Bang
Year is was first mentioned
Albert Einstein released his General Theory in 1905
In 1927 the idea was proposed by Georges Lemaître about the Big Bang theory
Timeline of events
Evidence on theory
In 1905, Albert Einstein established Newton’s laws of physics were all the same
In 1915, he published final theory of General Relativity
The theory of expanding universe
This law proposes that the universe was once compressed together
Impacts on society
Big impact on society
The main cause was religious reasons
Many people are annoyed with the theory as it imply a supernatural being created the universe
Many people believe the universe and the human race have lived forever
Future Implications
Ever since Georges Lemaître first proposed the Big Bang theory, numerous people have examined the theory based on many reasons.
In the future there will be more discoveries made but many questions will be left unanswered.
For example astronomers assume that an event called the Stellar Era Ends will occur in 100 Trillion Years. This means that the universe will gradually fade away if it keeps on expanding and “doesn’t re-collapse under the pull of its own gravity.”
The Big Bang is believed to be a big explosion
It is called the Big Bang but it wasn't an explosion
The universes matter expanded really, really fast which was mistaken for an explosion
In 1927, Georges Lemaitre suggested the Big Bang theory
Universe was a small dot
In a fraction of a second the 'dot' expanded
The matter spread across the universe
Who was involved in the discovery of the Big Bang
In 1929 Edwin Hubble discovered universe was currently expanding
The universe is expanding at a fast speed
Other galaxies are moving away from the Milky Way
Universe must have been created at a single furious moment in time
Officially known as the Big Bang theory
Theory was not complete until 1929
Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe was originally created by the Big Bang
Lead to his discovery of the expanding universe
Big Bang Theory
Basic theory says that the universe was first created as "singularities” - 13.7 billion years ago
“Singularities” are at the core of "black holes."
After it first appearance, it inflated which is known as the Big Bang
Then expand in a matter of seconds and cooled
“The galaxies were not all clumped together, but rather the Big Bang lay the foundations for the universe.” (LaRocco, C and Rothstein, B 2013).
Did God make the small dot that was the start of Big Bang?
As stated in the Secular Drop website: “Astronomer George Smoot suggested: "If you're religious, it's like looking at the face of god."”
