What Was The Universe Like Before The Big Bang

Steven Hawking big bang theory

Speaking to Neil deGrasse Tyson for a Popular Science special, Hawking said: "Nothing was around before the big, big bang".

Interestingly, the Big Bang Theory does not comment on how the universe was created and instead focuses on "the existence of energy, time, and space" of the Bang.

Confused? Physicist Stephen Hawking might have an answer. It happened all the time, by at the certain pace to discover the things that he only imagined. "I adopt a Euclidian approach to quantum gravity to describe the beginning of the universe, in this, ordinary real time is replaced by imaginary time, which behaves like a fourth direction of space", he said. Time is a "four-dimensional curved surface similar to the surface of the Earth, but with two dimensions". "In order terms, the Euclidian space-time is a closed surface without end, like the surface of the Earth", Hawking stated on the show.

Professor Hawking then explains that the best way to picture this reality is by thinking of imaginary time and real time beginning at our Earth's South Pole.

Hawking believes that at the Big Bang, which took place 13.8 billion years ago, the time itself emerged.

When asked "what was around before the Big Bang", Hawking was very uncompromising, simply answering that there was "nothing".

He said that it wasn't the Big Bang that caused something to be created out of nothing. Rather, he says anything that existed before the beginning of the universe as we know it has no role at all to play in everything that came after, and can therefore be completely left out of any theories we formulate to explain our observations.

The question of what happened before the Big Bang has puzzled physicists for decades, but one of the biggest names in the discipline, Stephen Hawking, has offered a mind-bendingly simple explanation. "Even the amount of matter in the universe can be different to what it was before the Big Bang, as the Law of Conservation of Matter, will break down at the Big Bang". He added that nothing was present before the Big Bang. He believes that there has "always been something" but that from the point of view of humanity, it just seemed like the Big Bang produced the universe from nothing.
