According to the Big Bang theory, the expansion of the observable universe began with the explosion of a single particle at a definite point in time. This startling idea first appeared in scientific form in 1931, in a paper by Georges Lemaître, a Belgian cosmologist and Catholic priest. The theory, accepted by nearly all astronomers today, was a radical departure from scientific orthodoxy in the 1930s. Many astronomers at the time were still uncomfortable with the idea that the universe is expanding. That the entire observable universe of galaxies began with a bang seemed preposterous.
I bet Lacarnut $50 no one here watched the video I posted.
Ok, I got about 4 minutes into that. Very interesting, but it is midnight. I did just do PT, right after an 8 hour shift where I had to deal with a range of issues from 40kt cross winds in the San Fransisco area, to fog in the Black Sea.
I'll try again tomorrow. :p
