We all live in this place we call the universe. It seems to house everything we know, and everything we will ever know. But how did this great place come to be? Lets explore!
Think of the history of the universe as a long tunnel. In order to find out the secrets that lie in the very beginning, we must backtrack and use what we know. At first, everything is illuminated and clear.
However, as we traverse deeper, things become less illuminated, and hazier Using this idea we are able to understand how scientists are still unsure about many things in the early universe.
If we go back far enough, we are able to theorize the beginning of the universe, and how everything began. The most common understanding it that our universe began as a singularity, which rapidly grew and expanded in a process known as the Big Bang.
Just in the first second, the universe expanded and developed immensely, and experienced 6 different epochs, all with unique characteristics. Also during this time, fundamental forces, as well as matter, we being created and manipulated.
