Hypography Sci-Tech delves deep into the Big Bang theory. Created by Tormod Guldvog Last updated September 14 2001 The Big Bang theory is not old, but it is widely accepted amongst physicists all over the world. Not everything is easy to explain, though. The uneven distribution of matter and the existence of life are two examples of issues which scientists will have to explain in order to finally prove the theory. A central question in the Big Bang theory is whether the universe is expanding or not. Another problem is the conservation of energy. We have selected some websites which offer insight into these matters. A presentation of the big bang theory by NASA, in connection with the Microwave Anisotropy Probe.

Extractions: Big Bang Java Calculator v1.1 Standard Big Bang Nucleosynthesis refers to an exceptionally simple and beautiful model of the early universe. Matter and radiation are spatially uniform and the expansion is controlled by known fields with negligible chemical potentials, so the dynamics of the expansion and density as a function of time and temperature is determined by ''just physics'' with no external parameters. The production of light elements depends on one parameter, the small baryon excess characterised by the baryon-to-photon ratio Eta . Numerical integration of the reaction network yields predictions for light element abundances with theoretical errors dominated by the experimental errors in the input physics such as nuclear reaction rates. The error matrix for SBBN has been computed by Fiorentini et al. (Phys. Rev. D58,1998; astro-ph/9803177 ) by Monte Carlo techniques. For many years SBBN theory and observation were mainly compared by the theorists. Integrations using updated rates and techniques were used to make state-of-the-art predictions and these were then compared with a collection of disparate observational data. Many reviews of this kind successively refined the predictions and the arguments concerning the post-big-bang processing of the elements (see reviews by S. Sarkar, Rep. Prog. Phys. 59, 1493, 1996, and D. Schramm and M. S. Turner, Rev. Mod. Phys. (Colloquia) 70, 303, 1998). The ''theoretical errors'' (really the nuclear-physics uncertainties) are no longer negligible compared with the observational errors so correct statistical comparison requires handling all of the errors at the same time, forcing the theorists to interpret observers' error budgets or vice versa. With theoretical predictions and errors now stable, it makes sense to empower the observers to do the comparison.

Extractions: The moment of creation for the universe The study of the Big Bang and the subsequent evolution of the universe is a known as cosmology . The best method for determining the age of the universe is by using the Hubble law . Current estimates give 12-20 billion years. The phrase "Big Bang" was coined by Fred Hoyle in an interview on BBC radio. He used the term in a derogatory sense (since the steady-stead model, of which he was a proponent, was the accepted one at the time), but it stuck at has entered the standard vernacular.

Reminiscent of "Let there be light...". Electrons and positrons created from light ( pair -production ) and destroyed by annihilation at about equal rates. The pair-production threshold is 1 MeV, so the thermal energy kT=8.6 MeV was well above that. Protons and neutrons being changed back and forth, so about equal numbers. The energy difference between neutron and proton is 1.29 MeV, so protons can be freely changed to neutrons at this temperature. Only about one baryon for 10 photons, as inferred from the 3K background and density estimates. Since the conservation of baryon number is a strong conservation principle , it is inferred that the ratio of photons to baryons is constant throughout the process of expansion.

Index Smith HyperPhysics Astrophysics Go Back Before 1 Planck Time Before a time classified as a Planck time, 10^-43 seconds, all of the four fundamental forces are presumed to have been unified into one force. All matter, energy, space and time are presumed to have exploded outward from the original singularity. Nothing is known of this period. It is not that we know a great deal about later periods either, it is just that we have no real coherent models of what might happen under such conditions. The electroweak unification has been supported by the discovery of the W and Z particles , and can be used as a platform for discussion of the next step, the Grand Unification Theory (GUT) . The final unification has been called a "supergrand unification theory", and becoming more popular is the designation "theory of everything" (TOE). But "theories of everything" are separated by two great leaps beyond the experiments we could ever hope to do on the Earth. Early universe chronology Unification of the Fundamental Forces Index
Extractions: by Robert V. Gentry The scientific community widely understands that expansion redshifts are the centerpiece of big-bang cosmology. What is generally unknown is the widespread confusion in the ranks of cosmologists as to exactly what they are. A minority equate them with Doppler shifts due to actual recession. A majority, however, claim: (i) the [expansion] redshift does not really have anything to do with velocities at all in cosmology," (ii) it is common but misleading to convert a large redshift to a recession velocity using the special-relativistic formula z v c - v c and (iii) "The truth is that expansion redshifts are totally different from Doppler redshifts, and the velocities catalogued by astronomers are not the recession velocities used in the velocity-distance law." Has the scientific community been victimized by astronomers as the foregoing implies? Or is it instead that the expansion redshift concept is flawed? This paper shows it's the latter, that it was accepted without ever being tested. In fact modern physics knows nothing of expansion's redshifts and their presumed origin due to expanding space rather than Doppler recession.

Extractions: A quantity obtained by multiplying the mass of an orbiting body by its velocity and the radius of its orbit. According to the conservation laws of physics, the angular momentum of any orbiting body must remain constant at all points in the orbit, i.e., it cannot be created or destroyed. If the orbit is elliptical the radius will vary. Since the mass is constant, the velocity changes. Thus planets in elliptical orbits travel faster at perihelion and more slowly at aphelion . A spinning body also possesses spin angular momentum. apastron

Big Bang Theory And when a theory has been tested as much as the big bang theory, with each Imaginethe Universe is a service of the High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive http://imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/ask_astro/answers/971108a.html
Extractions: Imagine Home Ask A High Energy Astronomer Current page (Submitted November 08, 1997) What is the big bang theory? What do you believe? The big bang theory is the theory that the universe started from a single point, and has been expanding ever since. This has been well-established by observations, such as the apparent movement of galaxies away from us, and the cosmic microwave background radiation believed to be the leftover light from the big bang. The evidence for a big bang having taken place about 15 to 20 billion years ago is overwhelming, so I naturally believe that it is the case. However, if your real question is "why did the big bang happen in the first place?" then that ceases to be an astronomical question, but a religious one. Some astronomers, who are religious, argue that the big bang theory confirms the existence of God and the basic elements of the creation story as told in the Bible. First came light, then the heavens, then the Earth ... However, many other scientists do not. Scientists, like people in most any profession, have a vast diversity of religious beliefs. Some of us attend houses of worship, others do not. Some of us consider ourselves very religious, others consider ourselves staunch atheists. Just because we study astronomy does not mean we have any more agreement as to the ``why'' questions than anyone else.

Extractions: The Big Bang Nucleosynthesis Homepage One of the principle predictions of the standard Hot Big Bang model is the synthesis of light elements in the primordial universe. The references showing that stellar processes cannot account for the observed abundances are well know, and the calculations of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis (BBN) have been performed for decades. These calculations are very sensitive to some parameters that are measured in terrestrial experiments, and are constrained by the observations of astronomers. There has been rapid improvement in both sets of measurments in the recent past. The improvement has been rapid enough that a quickly responsive forum for the latest implications of these measurments is appropriate. The goal of this Web site is to provide the needed fourm, and to serve as a clearing house for the latest information and speculation regarding BBN. The organization of this site is simplistic, but it has not been written with a lay audience in mind. Since much of the information available is pictoral in nature, it is strongly suggested that a browser with graphic capabilities be used.
