We think that our Universe was born almost 14 billion years ago in the inflationary Big Bang. It started as an exquisitely small Patch, and then–in the smallest fraction of a second–expanded exponentially to attain macroscopic size. Something, we do not know precisely what, made that tiny Patch undergo this runaway inflation. That tiny Patch, far too small for a human being to see, so small that it was almost, but not exactly, nothing, was, in fact, so dense and hot that all that we are and all that we can ever know, sprung from it. Space and Time were born together in the wildly expanding fireball of the Big Bang.
The baby Universe was filled with extremely energetic radiation, a writhing sea of hot particles of light (photons). The entire baby Universe glowed brilliantly. What we now see almost 14 billion years later is the fading, greatly expanded and expanding, the aftermath of that initial burst of brilliance. As our Universe grew to its present enormous size, the flames of its formation faded. And now we watch from our small, obscure, rocky little planet as our Universe grows larger and larger, colder and colder, darker and darker, dimming eerily to ash.
Georges Henri Joseph Edouard Lemaitre (1894-1966) was a Belgian priest, astronomer, and professor of physics at the Catholic University of Louvain. Lemaitre was one of the first to propose that our Universe is expanding, as well as formulating the theory that would eventually be called the Big Bang Universe. Once Lemaitre observed that “The evolution of the world may be compared to a display of fireworks that has just ended: some few wisps, ashes, and smoke. Standing on a cooled cinder, we see the slow fading of the suns, and we try to recall the vanished brilliance of the origins of the worlds.”
