The Big Bang Theory And Steady State Theory

Good Essays
Discussion – Tayla Dorrington
Introduction
There are 2 major theories about the universe and how it began. These are the steady state and The Big Bang theory. Both theories have an explanation on how our Universe is, how it began and how it works. Both theories have stuff in common but also have many differences that could completely change the way we look at the Universe. The Big Bang Theory has much more evidence supporting it, while the Steady State Theory has been proven wrong.
Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory first started from Hubble’s discovery of the Universe’s expansion. It states that all matter and energy in the universe were created in an explosion from a single tiny point about 14 billion years ago. All the matter and energy

The steady state theory states that the universe on a large scale does not change over time. It has always existed and will always continue to exist looking much as it does now. The density of the universe remains the same because as the universe expands matter is continuously being created to fill the gap. It believes that universe has always existed and will always exist. This theory is not a major part of science anymore because it has been proven wrong due to the fact that scientist began seeing differences between how the universe is now compared to how it was back …show more content…
Scientists discovered that there are microwaves coming from every direction in space. Electromagnetic radiation which was present shortly after the big bang is now observed as background microwave radiation. Big Bang theory says this energy has been travelling through space ever since it was created at the beginning of the universe, just after the Big Bang. CMBR Is the remains of energy created just after the Big Bang. Cosmic Microwave Background radiation supports the Big Bang Theory but is more Evidence that has been put against the Steady State

    Also the universe was considered infinite at one point in time but the Big Bang proved that the universe had to have a history and a beginning. (2)According to Chris LaRocco and Blair Rothstein article 15 billion years ago there was an explosion called the Big Bang that created the universe. This explosion contained all the matter and energy of space. Unlike other explosion like a bomb that throw fragments outwards the Big Bang filled in the space with particles of the embryonic universe. Before the Big Bang galaxies were clustered together but the explosion created space and foundation for the universe.…

    The Big Bang Theory is the on-going explanation about how the universe began. The theory talks about the universe as we know it starting with a small originality, then expanding over the next 13.8 billion years to the universe we know of today. The phrase "Big Bang Theory" has been popular among astrophysicists for decades. The idea is that the universe began with an explosion more than 14 billion years ago, and many scientists also believe our universe and others, come from a “singularity”. According to the theory formulated in 1927, the universe is still expanding today.…

    Basically almost everything is held by gravity in space. Some astronomers believe some galaxies as held by black holes. But is that really the case? The short period of growth of the universe started of as the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago. After the Big Bang the universe started to cool of, starting protons and neutrons, hydrogen, helium, lithium and more.…

    However, he made some assumptions in order to prove it. Hubble showed that the Universe is expanding by showing that almost all the galaxies are red shifted, meaning that they are moving away from us. Describe the probable origins of the Universe including the transformation of radiation into matter which follow the Big Bang The Universe started with a Big Bang. At the beginning of the Big bang, there was only radiation. However over time ranging from 300 seconds to 1 million years, the particles combined to form atoms…

    This is known as the “baby” star. This is the part of a stars life before they make it into the main sequence, the stage where our sun is currently in. The young star can be stuck in this stage for as many years as 100,000 or more ; it all depends on how big the star is. The protostar starts forming when colossal clouds of frigid molecular hydrogen and helium collapse because of conjoint gravity. The spark of the collapse could have been caused by a galaxy collision, or the shockwave of a neighboring supernova.…

    Rutherford overturned Thompson’s Plum Pudding Model. He again used the gold foil experiment. This time, the alpha particles fired almost directly back at him. After many hours of contemplating “He reasoned that the only way the alpha particles could be deflected backwards was if most of the mass in an atom was concentrated in the nucleus.” http://www.iun.edu/~cpanhd/C101webnotes/modern-atomic-theory/rutherford-model.html Profesor N. De Leon. He then developed a new model of the atom which placed all the protons in the nucleus and all of the electrons around the outside of the nucleus.…

    It provides another piece of direct evidence, in case any is needed, that the Big Bang really happened, because it allows us to look back directly and detect the nature of the very young, hot universe from which all the structures we see today later emerged” (Krauss 42). The Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation fills the Universe as electromagnetic radiation, this radiation can only be detected by a radio telescope. The Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation shows up on a radio telescope as a faint glow. The glow of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation is the strongest microwave wave on the radio spectrum (Coffey). In 1964 radio astronomer Robert Wilson, along with physicist, Arno Penzias discovered what is now known as the CMB or Cosmic Microwave Background.…

    The big bang theory is often misinterpreted for what some may describe as the origin of the universe. However, this misconception actually informs us on how our universe was created in one single explosion, which is said to have happened approximately fourteen billion years ago.8 Everything that makes up who we are and what surrounds us started then, as an infinitely small volume that continued to expand in a ridiculously fast rate, where within a matter of minutes the universe became the size of our solar system. Our solar system is only dated to be about five billion years old.1 One second after the big bang, the universe was filled with neutrons, protons, anti-electrons, photons, and neutrinos.4 Still, thousands of years later, it continues…

    The methods and theories that will be summarised are how the Big Bang theory had created the very first and lightest elements in our universe, and also how red giants have contributed to creating more elements such as carbon, nitrogen and oxygen whilst the supernovas had contributed to creating elements heavier than iron such as Uranium and Gold. Another major theory that can be summarised from the report is that Dmitri Mendeleev had made himself a major breakthrough with his discovery of the periodic table and an even bigger achievement of leaving gaps in it based on the recurring atomic masses and mathematics allowing other scientists to add in elements that will be discovered later…
