Hello Josh, I was learning about The Big Bang theory, but I still don't understand it. Could you please explain it to me?
I would love to Lilly!
The entire universe started out as a dense and really hot little dot, the size of a pinhead.
Really?! That means the universe used to be smaller than my fingertip!
Then in a fraction of a second it EXPLODED, and was really really hot!
Wow, so thats why its called the Big Bang. Because there was a really Big Bang!!!
Once it cooled a little, the energy formed from the bang created particles of matter called Hydrogen and helium, the first two elements on the periodic table! Soon after the other elements were created, and eventually made up everything around us!
So if it weren't for the elements, our world wouldn't exist!!
That is how The Big Bang created our universe, but it's not over yet. Our universe is still expanding and getting bigger every single day!
Thats means that when I woke up this morning, the entire universe was a little bigger than it was yesterday!
Thank you so much Josh for helping me understand The Big Bang Theory!
No Problem Lilly. I love teaching people about The Big Bang!!
