Stephen Hawking Explained What Had Happened Before The Big Bang

Both astrophysicists and regular people have been interested in what was before the Big Bang, the ‘explosion’ that generated the stars, the galaxies, and the planets, and all in between. Recently, the renown physicist Stephen Hawking explained what had happened before the Big Bang, in his vision.

More specifically, was there something before the Big Bang?
According to Hawking, the boundary condition of the Universe, as we know it, is that the Universe knows no borders and that the space-time in the Euclidian vision, the one we adopted, is like the surface of the Earth – closed and endless.

“One can regard imaginary and real-time beginning at the South Pole, which is a smooth point of space-time where the normal laws of physics hold. There is nothing south of the South Pole, so there was nothing around before the Big Bang,” explained Stephen Hawking during the Star Talk show.

Time was present before the Big Bang but not as we know it today
Hawking continued to explain his vision of what happened before the Big Bang. He explained that time existed back then, before the Big Bang, but the time had a bent state within the approximately endless “quantum foam” of before the explosion that created the Universe.

According to Hawking, the time before the Big Bang was belonging to another dimension.

However, in one of his seminars, Stephen Hawking admitted that all the events prior to the Big Bang left no observable results, thus, those events could’ve never been determined or explained due to the fact that there are not any methods to measure or depict what happened before the Big Bang.

“The universe will evolve from the Big Bang, completely independently of what it was like before. 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,” concluded Stephen Hawking who explained what had happened before the Big Bang during the Star Talk show.

  1. Myself and half the CIA (including former Chief James Woolsey) are going with Dr Randall Mills’ Grand Unified Theory Of Classical Physics (GUT-CP)… an ‘Oscillating Universe’ eternally expanding and contracting over a trillion years or so…~
    “Mills’ theory of gravity led him to a new cosmological model. When energy is converted to matter during particle production, spacetime is contracted and a gravitational field is created. When matter is released back into energy (during annihilation, or during any chemical or nuclear release of energy) spacetime is expanded, literally pushed out.
    Mills predicted a oscillating universe in which the universe expands as matter is released as energy over 450 billion years, and then contracts as energy is reformed into matter over another 450 billion years. The plot is sinusoidal, and since we live very early in the expansion phase, the universe should be accelerating its expansion. By contrast, “Big Bang” theory predicts that the universe should be slowing in its outward expansion.”
