Have you ever wondered how this awesome planet came to be how it is today, or how it was even created? There are all kinds of theories of how it was created, but the "Big Bang Theory" is the most widely accepted today for the origin of earth.

It all started between 10 and 20 billion years ago when the entire universe was only an atomic nucleus. The moment before creation, when space and did not exist is known as singularity, but then came an explosion with temperatures hitting in the trillions of degrees that created not only subatomic particles, but matter space, and time itself.

The Big Bang Theory Jason Piaia March 26, 2000 Quantum theory says that immediately following the explosion the for four forces of nature: strong nuclear, weak nuclear, electromagnetic and gravity were combined to form a super force.

Primary particles started to come together three at a time, making protons and neutrons. There was a tiny amount of protons and neutrons at this time, about 1 for every one billion photons. The remaining of these particles make up the majority of our universe today.

The Big Bang was thought up because it explains why distant galaxies are traveling away from us at great speeds. Even though the Big Bang Theory is widely accepted, it probably will never be proved; then leaving many touch answered questions on how this wonderful planet was created.

Summary of "The Big Bang" The Big Bang Theory is the most dominant scientific theory about the origin of the universe 10 to 20 billion years ago.
