The Beginning of Everything -- The Big Bang

  • Published: 03 March 2014
  • How did everything get started?

    Has the universe a beginning or was it here since forever? Well, evidence suggests that there was indeed a starting point to this universe we are part of right now. But how can this be? How can something come from nothing? And what about time? We don't have all the answers yet so let's talk about what we know.

    Also, we try to make this one not depressing. Tell us if we succeeded.

    BY THE WAY. We have a website now. We'll try to blog from time to time, show you guys how we make the videos and give more insight to our process. Also we sell stuff. We really don't know where this whole kurzgesagt stuff leads us. But we are really thankful for all the attention and positive feedback and yeah, maybe we can make this our jobs -- it would be pretty nice and we could do more content each month. But we'll see. For now, thank you very much everybody for making this little adventure possible.

    Support us on Patreon so we can make more videos (and get cool stuff in return):

      As a Belgian, I am shocked.
      Not only don't you know that Einstein himself refuted the idea of an expending universe at first,
      0:22 you even wrongfully give credit to Hubble, even though it was Georges Lemaître, a Belgian priest who actually dicovered this.,.
      I mean, discovering and providing evidence to support a claim, isn't the same.,.

      Fnaf Farts Animations I don't believe the Big Bang theory is Biblical. For example, the Bible says that the Earth was created before the stars. However, the Big Bang theory says that the stars were created before the Earth.
      I also don't believe the Big Bang is scientific. If the Big Bang theory is true, then all the matter in the universe should have been mostly evenly distributed. However, the matter in our universe is very "lumpy". There are huge spaces in the universe where there is literally nothing, and other spaces with billions of stars and planets packed together.

      @Tyler B Yeah I never believed in that crap but maybe if it was real it must have been made by god. I'm a Christian so that option might be possible for it, else there is nothing to prove it.

      What if the universe was a loop in all directions. If you go far enough in one direction (very very very far) you'll eventually end up in the same place. Probably unlikely but I like the idea.

                    No, steady state is an alternative to the Big Bang, one which ALSO involves an expanding Universe. This idea has been disproved in the meantime, by observational evidence.

                    What was before that singularity? What happens at the end? Then what?

                      _What was before that singularity?_ - Nobody really knows. In fact, the idea of a "singularity" is very dubious - the very fact that General Relativity predicts such a singularity probably means there is something wrong with the theory. Mind you, it has worked great so far, but it is expected to break down under extreme conditions.

                          This is a theory that Albert Einstein didn't believe all. This video doesn't cover a LOT of details. We've been told in schools that this IS how the universe was created (in school systems that are said to not teach religion....religion=beliefs. And, now people believe in Big Bang Theory).....When watching this video, did you question if you believe in this, or did you watch it with the mindset "This is True!"??...Levels of certainty in this theory are what I find to be most concerning.

                            @Robert Mathisen Haha yeah I knew you didn't mean the TV show.

                            The Big Bang Theory is the leading explanation about how the universe developed. It's based on many observation and sciences, one of the more important observations is the phenomenon of the expansion of spacetime - that the universe is expanding and did so in the past. Those are facts. The expansion from a smaller more dense state is what we call the Big Bang.

                            @Pero For the record, I'm not thinking about/referring to the TV show. Just want to make that clear. To my understanding, the Big Bang Theory is a theory about the Big Bang. Is that correct?

                            @Robert Mathisen The Big Bang and the Big Bang theory/cosmological model aren't the same thing. You don't seem to realize that. That's why I'm assuming you don't really understand what you are talking about..

                            Einstein's personal beliefs about this are sort of irrelevant. The point is that his contributions have helped us better understand how the Universe works.

                            Don't make assumptions about their intent in mentioning Einstein... They made no claim he believed it. They simply said "Until Einstein's theory of relativity gave us a better understanding of gravity" annnd promptly moved on.

                          2. Universe Big Bang , Universe Recovery Evolution million years process, The Universe that we live today.

                          3. Universe Imortal, universe with new sky and new earth, after the end of the world.

                          And I believe universe will Restore look like first universe with holy, serenity, and freedom from sin, freedom from darkness,freedom from sadness,freedom from dead, and freedom from pain.

Its impossible in any ways, why people tryin to explain us what happened after, why is nobody thinking that if something cannot happen from nothing (which is true) that whole theory is wrong

                                        @Ralph Tamez Your initial rant about the Earth's spin relative to the other systems didn't make sense and it misses a crucial fact of the universe. That space itself is expanding. And that we don't have to literally see everything in the past for our models to be sound. That's why we have scientific theories...

                                        General relativity — our leading theory of gravity — is that it lays out the relationship between spacetime, on one hand, and matter and energy, on the other. Matter and energy tell spacetime how to curve; spacetime tells matter how to move.

                                        When you look out at a distant galaxy, and see that galaxy is redder than normal, the common way of thinking about it is that the galaxy is red because it's moving away from us, and hence the light is shifted to longer (redder) wavelengths.

                                        As the Universe expands, the fabric of space stretches, and those individual light waves in that space see their wavelengths stretch as well. There's a relationship that exists between the redshift (and hence the wavelength), taking in the empirical observation known as Hubble's Law, and the observed brightness of the galaxy, which is a function of distance.

                                        If our equations took everything into account, there was no other better explanation - the Universe itself is expanding. The fact that the redshift of an object matched up to the distance relation and the observed expansion rate as well as it did, no matter how far away an object was, helped confirm that.

                                        But there's even more evidence than that. If the Universe were actually expanding, there would be a number of things we could expect to see. We'd see that the farther we looked into the distant past, the denser the matter in the Universe would appear. We'd see that galaxies were clustered closer together than they are today. We'd see that the spectrum of light from blackbody objects remained blackbody, rather than shifted in energy. And we'd see that the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation was at a higher temperature back then than the 2.7K it is today.

                                        And all of these pieces of evidence line up. There's no better model to encompass all of the observations and explain it better than the Big Bang cosmological model. If there was one, we'd know of it and the people who came up with it and confirmed it. Nobel prizes to boot...

                                        @Pabnb one important factor is missing .. how fast are we traveling through space/time there is no set marker that we can measure off of.. that's only one . I explained spin earlier and you obviously didn't see it. or I'm sure you would have responded. .... it appears space is expanding but according to what ? Yes we have been making telescopes and whatnot that have come a long way but to conclude that there was a big bang that started off time makes no sense. . Humans are so used to seeing things born and die that we figure even the entire universe started from something the size of an egg.. again.. how fast are we traveling in space and how many times are we spinning? Answer my first question if you can.. then maybe .. just maybe you will understand what I'm talking about. Unless you are just happy with the big bang theory as being a fact.. if so ...then carry on.. have a good day. Time as space as science stands still for no one . How many theories are there just on what our universe is in the shape of? If you cannot see the whole universe then you cannot state that the big bang theory is in itself a fact. This video is a duplicate of others that follow the big bang "theory".

                                        @Ralph Tamez "'s all factual when in reality it is based off of *theories* .." - There you go again, your "just a theory" response...

                                        You do realize that scientific theories give us models that help us explain the current evidence right?

                                        And that *it is a fact* that there is currently no better alternative model that best explain all of the current observations surrounding the CMBR, the expansion of space-time, the physical laws surrounding it etc. than the cosmological model the Big Bang Theory gives us?

                                        And like others have said, you didn't even watch the video, because they are not saying that this is fact.

                                      In this video, we are told to ignore the beginning part. But at the big bang, in the beginning, things moved faster than light. And there was no matter kind of the same description of what we find in a blackhole.

                                        the universe was expanding faster 14.5 billion years ago & prior to that faster than the light of physics can math today. Today it exists as we see it today 14.5 billion light-years old. The observable Universe is only 15.5 billion years old and this is all we can observe.

                                          we observe the Universe is expanding but this is an illusion. The further distances we observe from Earth the further in the past we observe. IE it takes light ( observable images to reach our eyes) sometimes hundreds or thousands or even million 7 billions of years to reach our place of observation on Earth( we get how far light can travel in a year recorded as a distance). In the past matter was changing faster than the present even to defy current laws of comprehensible physics to know today( CE). 14.5 billion years ago in the universe 14.5 billion years away, the Universe is traveling faster appearing to expand.

                                            _we observe the Universe is expanding but this is an illusion._ - What do you mean an "illusion"??? The redshift of distant galaxies clearly shows that they are moving away from us.

                                          The Universe Is Infinite. We can only see 14.5 billion light-years away coz that is how Long the Universe has existed. Thus we recognize ourselves at the center of an observable universe. If we were to be 13 billion light-years away from our current location we would still observe ourselves at the center of a 14.5 billion light-year wide universe. Thus the Universe is Infinite.

                                            _The Universe Is Infinite._ - The Universe may be finite or infinite. We simply don't know for now.

                                            And after end of the world the new universe will be created , The Third Universe, with new sky and new earth.

                                                But that's ok. Creationists always try to derail discussions as they more and more realise how absurd their claims are. If you can't have a mature discussion, then so be it. If you have a calm moment, and ever receive a state in which the truth is of higher importants to you than absurd myths and tales, find the courage to have doubt, for only those who doubt can find the truth. Best of luck. :)

                                                If you have no time to read it, then probably the entire god question isn't that important to you.

                                                1) As explained in detail, no matter what's in the book, it could never prove that your god exists, and if you have any interested in the truth, you'd know that.
                                                2) It's from a book that claims that a man split the moon. As we all know, the moon is still in one piece, and a person can't split it, so the book obviously contains some absurd nonsense.
                                                3) As we have already confirmed, some of the stuff in the book is false, as such taking anything as granted without detailed examination would be foolish.
                                                4) You make a lot of claims without giving any exact sources. How comes? Please show me where exactly in your book is written what you claim to be written there.

                                                @SoMedia Production 1) You didn't answer my question. Ask yourself why you couldn't do it.
                                                2) _"riddle me that"_
                                                You are not objective. Any religious person pretends that their religion is true and any other is false, and that anything written in their holy books is true.

                                                As such, anything in the Quran that makes no sense whatsoerver is ignored to you.

                                                Anything in the Quran that is just slightly absurd you twist and distort until it seemingly fits your preferred conclusion.

                                                For example: if your holy book would say _"and there is the Moon and there are birds",_ then you would interpret it into _"the Quran specifically described how the NASA will send spacecraft flying to the Moon, flying like birds! THIS CAN'T BE A COINCIDENCE GOD IS REAL!!!"_

                                                I mean, where is the evidence that the god you were trained to believe in actually exists? That book you refer to? That is no evidence. Even if the Quran would contain any information a normal book couldn't contain (which is not the case), that wouldn't prove that your god exists. Even if the Quran would say "and in 2011 Steve Jobs will die, who will by then have made popular smartphones", THAT would not prove that your god exists.
                                                Why? Because you would have nothing to trace it without a doubt to your god.
                                                Maybe the christian god gave the author the knowledge here? Maybe it was a hindu god, pretending to be your god? Maybe there was no god involved, but the author of your book was just a time traveller coming from the future? Maybe aliens wrote that book, who knew everything about the future?

                                                So, to recap:
                                                1) You couldn't answer my earlier question.
                                                2) You are not objective.
                                                3) You have no evidence that the god you worship exists.
                                                4) Nothing in the Quran proves that it is more than a book written by mere men.
                                                5) Even if the Quran would contain information unavaiable to the time it was written in, that wouldn't prove that your god exists.

                                              everything what we know of our World is part of one big individual Universe,
                                              wich is a small part of a way bigger World that we can't even imagine.

                                              The big bang was only one part, a step of the prozess to what gave birth to our Universe...
                                              its what we like to miss : life is full of wonder and so is the big bang.
                                              we are somewhat in a nutshell, nothing new yey!

                                                      @Matthew Goodfriend Extreme gets away with it because it's a discussion about god claims. Because most believers actually claim to have a personal relationship with god. So in that sense, it makes sense.

                                                      "I made absolutely no argument for god being real". Nor did I claim you did. I was simply comparing the two in case you turned out to believe and in case op sees the message.

                                                      Also, you assume I'm angry when I'm in fact not. It's not a rant, I'm simply responding to your comment. You seem to be the one triggered by my comment.

                                                      @PD Way to sense the tone... I was paraphrasing what Extreme said so he might see how that thought process doesn't work. It's interesting you didn't lose your mind when they said it tho...

                                                      I made absolutely no argument for god being real, I was simply answering the original posters question because people that use science and a higher level of thinking still believe some pretty stupid stuff. It was such a simple reply and now you're off ranting about the most common assumptions like you're fighting some intellectual war. lol You need to chill out, talking to people that way doesn't help your case even when you're right.

                                                      @Matthew Goodfriend That's a joke, right? The "if you didn't see it, it didn't happen" argument is the stupidest thing you could ever say. No, of course we didn't "see" the big bang happening, just as I didn't "see" the Titanic sinking or my grandma being born. The thing is we have EVIDENCE for it. We won't let murderes go because nobody saw it happening; we use evidence to conclude that he really is the murderer. Same thing with the big bang, we have mountains of evidence for the Big Bang, and literally ZERO evidence for the existance of a God. So you're the one with the "bad logic" here.

                                                      Btw, just because "some" scientists believe god exist doesn't make it true, they first have to provide evidence for their claim. There are literally scientis out there the believe the earth is flat, that global warming is a myth, the we didn't land on the moon, that Bush did 9/11, etc.

                                                      "So many people in the US are still religious". Is that supposed to mean anything? You do realise you're taking about the country were 7% of people believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows, where 2 out of 10 people thinks vaccines will harm you, where the whole "gender" drama orginates, where there was made a "Noah's ark" museum that teaches people how humans lived along side dinosaurs, where they think Europe is a country, where the education system is completly flawd, and I could just go on and on. Being religious is just another part of this.

                                                      If you care about what's true or not, you should probably look at the evidence. Why would you EVER believe in something when you don't have any evidence for it?

                                                      Some scientists believe in god, who can be considered a scientist is pretty broad and so many people in the US are still religious.

                                                          What if god is real and yet has no impact on your life or death so you're left with only what you can observe or experience to dictate your life's choices? Ever curious...

                                                        Very hard to avoid the notion of God on this topic, but I do appreciate the effort.

                                                          Considering that we have no rational reason to believe in God, I don't see why it is hard to avoid that subject.

                                                        i may not know how everything began, but I have an idea of how we came to be, just hear me out. I'm not trying to copy anyone if this is already something someone has thought of, i'm just putting it out there.

                                                        all actions require energy to perform right? well what if all of this had happened before, but on a much larger and slower scale. if the universe is currently expanding, wouldn't it retract due time? I think of the universe is kinda like a rubber band, where once it stretches to it's maximum, it comes back to its original state, and continues vibrating. with every retraction/expansion, it loses kinetic energy, and the scale of retractions/expansions becomes smaller.

                                                        i'm not a scientist, just a 14 yr old in the 9th grade, so you don't have to believe me :/

                                                          @Diego Veloso yeah if I had to label myself, which I never do, I'd be a pantheist, not an atheist. I just think that all religious teachings have be so distorted that they are basically useless. The Father of creation instantly brings an image of a man especially when you teach it to a child which I dont think was the message. I think it was that energy that makes everything happen. It was labeled God. God is the father, son and is everywhere and in everything. See, that sounds ridiculous when you view it from the way religion is taught but it's not ridiculous when you think of it from what I am saying, and what I am saying facilitates science and all that will be ever found out in the future.

                                                          We say Mother nature and we know what that means, we do not think it's an actual woman.

                                                          @casperld thats actually why im an agnostic atheist. And what you mentioned about how a god would fit in is, to a degree, the reason why einstein was a pantheist

                                                          @Diego Veloso exactly my point. My original post that you responded to was asking about what you or anyone else can never and probably will never be able to explain. Plus I'm actually just playing devils advocate here. I would probably be labeled an atheist I suppose, but somebody once told me that if you think about the actual energy that is making everything happen from before the big bang to why an apple seed grows into an apple tree, and replace that Universal energy with the word God then religious teaching make more sense. I dont believe for a second these teaching where meant to be taken literally. Plus another thing is, how little we actually know, but think we know a lot. 100 years ago, the scientists thought they knew a lot. In 2000 years from now, if humans as re still around they will be crying with laughter at what we believe right now and they will think they know a lot, but they wont know shit either.
