The Birth of the Universe
The ‘big bang’ or the ‘last birth’ of the universe (there could have been other ‘births’ before then) is theorized to have occurred 14 billion years ago. All matter and energy in the entire universe today, the billions of galaxies and trillions of stars, including us and our solar system, were contained in one tiny globule smaller than an atom. Within 8 microseconds of the big-bang, all matter and energy in the globule were scattered to the far reaches of the universe billions and billions of light years in size.
The discovery of galaxies flying away from each other became the proof for the big-bang theory, a tremendous explosion which is still in motion right now. From the chaotic broth of that explosion, matter, energy and gravity had violent interactions to form the first galaxies in just a few million years.
We must never react to those who are irritated when we relate the grandeur of the universe to the even greater grandeur of God. For us, the very fact that we are star-gazers is a form of reverent adoration. This new mind-boggling knowledge that the universe was born from an atom-sized bubble to a billions-of-light-years-sized vastness in a micro-second blink of an eye is for us a reflection of the awesome power of the Creator. For every new knowledge about the universe that emerges rapidly due to new milestone technologies, we watch the unfolding of the Creator in awe.
Expansion of the Universe
For a long time, scientists thought that the expansion of galaxies away from each other was slowing down, since the energy of the big bang, according to known laws of physics, should be dissipating through time. In 1998 however, this was proven wrong. New findings revealed that the expansion rate was in fact increasing. The mysterious energy behind this was labeled ‘dark energy’.
The proof of rate increase was based on the discovery of so-called ‘double-star supernova type 1A’. Surprisingly, all such supernovae exploded when they reached 1.4 mass of our sun, and they released exactly the same amount of light. It then became so easy to measure distances of even the farthest galaxies with extreme accuracy, because the farther they were, the dimmer this supernova-1A light.
This milestone discovery has led to other mind-boggling discoveries in galaxies billions of light years away. Still, astronomers wonder why the rate of expansion is increasing. Is there some form of unknown energy triggering this? They labeled this mysterious force as ‘dark energy’, although little is known about it.
Neutrinos – Ghost Cosmic Particles
For a long time, supernovae were a total mystery. Scientists were dumbfounded about where its tremendous energy came from. They just could not pinpoint it. The discovery of ‘neutrinos’ transformed the science of supernovae. In 1987, using for the first time a sophisticated instrument deep underground, evolved from the ‘hydrogen bubble chamber’, scientists studied a supernova that occurred in the Large Magellanic Cloud 168,000 years ago. The study revealed that the supernova explosion created ghost particles called ‘neutrinos’, trillions of times smaller than atoms.
The energy from the physical explosion of a supernova was a mere one percent of the total energy in a supernova. The rest of the 99% was theorized to be contained in the neutrinos. Neutrinos are produced as the core of the mega-star collapses before the explosion. The ten-second explosion is seen as the brightest object in the entire universe and has a momentary energy greater than that of the entire universe. The explosion releases trillions of blazing neutrinos. The invisible neutrinos travel at the speed of light and pass through matter without affecting it because it is electrically neutral. Right now, trillions of neutrinos are passing through our bodies per second. It is everywhere and permeates the entire universe.
Neutrinos are produced by nuclear reactions, nuclear explosions, supernovas and other forms of violent cosmic-yet-atomic events. Our sun gives us a steady stream of neutrinos as it burns hydrogen into helium through nuclear fission. We are immersed in this awesome neutral ghost particles that permeates the entire universe.
Our knowledge of and theories about the universe will keep evolving through time. The neutrino phenomenon proves Man’s knowledge and perspectives are dynamic. We approach Truth which is ever-changing rather than static, absolute or constant. Evolving Truth changes Man and makes him more powerful through the millennia of his brief existence. For knowledge is power, and perspective is power, which make us an integral part of the universe. We become part of what we discover.
We are Stardust
It was in the extreme heat and nuclear reaction in a supernova that heavy elements were crafted. At the start, heavy iron sank to the core, triggering extreme heat and gravity. This was the foundry where heavy elements like gold, zinc, copper, cobalt, nickel, platinum, uranium were crafted. In truth, the iron in our blood and the zinc in our bones were formed by supernovae millions of years ago. We literally came from stardust and when our sun dies into a mini-nova a few billions years from now, to stardust we will return, at least our billions-of-years-old remains.
There are those who mistake this theory of our supernova origins to mean that the universe created itself and Man, and God did not. It was the same mistake of an ignorant human Church decades ago in concluding that Darwin’s theory of evolution disputed the existence of God. The Church finally reversed its position. Darwin’s theory, as much as the theory of our stardust origin, in fact proves rather than disproves the theology of creation.
