Stephen Hawking Says He Knows What Happened Before The Big Bang

The mystery of what happened before the Big Bang may have just been solved

The mystery of what happened before the Big Bang may have just been solved

According to the Big Bang theory, the universe in retrospective can shrink to the size of an extremely small "subatomic ball" known as the singularity.

The National Geographic "Star Talk" will air on March 4 starring Neil De Grassi as host and physicist Stephen Hawking as a guest at 11:00 P.M.

Hawking had a simple and direct answer to the question. "There was nothing around the Big explosion", he said.

Hawking relied on the shape of the Earth as analogy to the curved shape of the space-time continuum: "According to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, space and time come together form a space-time continuum or manifold which is not flat but curved by the matter and energy in it".

"Not just Hawking's model but all cosmological models seeking to avoid the need for a transcendent Causal Agent for the universe (aka God) require that the quantum space-time fluctuations during the quantum gravity era (the era when the universe is smaller than the diameter of an electron) must be large", explained Ross. "It is not enough to simply speculate that imaginary time also exists". Honestly, this happens to me all the time. Furthermore, we do mean it when we say brainteaser-Hawking's clarification incorporates this brilliant line: "Standard continuous is supplanted by fanciful time, which carries on like a fourth bearing of room". As per Euclid, the imaginary time works like a four-dimensional curved surface of the Earth but it has two extra dimensions. It is, in fact, is the space-time.

"Nothing was around before the big, big bang", Hawking said.

Basing his theories on the assumption that the universe has no boundaries, the British cosmologist said: "There was nothing around before the Big, Big Bang".

Meanwhile, the Hartle-Hawking state that was referred to in the interview is a proposal from the legendary physicist and James Hartle, an American physicist, that infers that there was no time before the big bang. The universe is now completely different and independent from what it was before the Big Bang.

'At a singularity, all the laws of physics would have broken down.
