"There Was Nothing Around Before The Big Bang", Says Stephen Hawking
- TEAM PT



There was absolutely nothing before the Big Bang, according to British physicist Stephen Hawking, who explained what happened prior to the existence of our universe. The Big Bang theory proposes that a tiny speck of matter and energy began to grow, bringing about the birth of our universe about the universe billions of years ago. However, scientists are intrigued by what was there before the "explosion" when there was supposed to be nothing. 
 
Speaking during a TV talk show "Star Talk”, aired on National Geographic Channel, Hawking propounded his theory on what happened before the universe came into existence. His theory lies upon the assumption that the universe has no boundaries, the Xinhua reported late on Sunday. "The boundary condition of the universe ... is that it has no boundary,” he told TV host Neil deGrasse Tyson.
 
The Big Bang is the rapid expansion of matter from a state of extremely high density and temperature which according to current cosmological theories marked the origin of the universe. The Big Bang theory holds that the universe in retrospective can shrink to the size of an extremely small "subatomic ball" known as the singularity. According to Hawking, the laws of physics and time cease to function inside that tiny particle of heat and energy. The ordinary real time as we know now shrinks infinitely as the universe becomes ever smaller but never reaches a definable starting point.

"One can regard imaginary and real time beginning at the South Pole. There is nothing south of the South Pole, so there was nothing around before the Big Bang,” Hawking said. "There was never a Big Bang that produced something from nothing. It just seemed that way from mankind’s perspective,” Hawking said. He said that a lot of what we believe is derived from a human-centric perspective, which might limit the scope of human knowledge of the world.
