What actually happened during the Big Bang? Here is a description that may change the way you think about this event:
The Big Bang was not an explosion of matter into space, rather it was an explosion of space ITSELF, and since space and time are interconnected, we really have to say it was an explosion of space AND time, or space-time.
So, the Big Bang wasnâ€™t an explosion of stuff like atoms or molecules, it was an explosion of a place and instance, it was the creation of when and where.
