Before the Big Bang, what was there?
John Beard from Cambridgeshire (age 55+)
What was there before the universe?
Zakaria Rashid from Greater London
They talk about the big bang, but what was there before the big bang, why was there just an empty darkness, where did it come from and why?
Dez from Derbyshire
If our universe began with a ‘Big Bang’, where did the components for the big bang come from? How can our existence ever be entirely explained? Where do all the universes end? They cannot end. It makes my head hurt just trying to imagine the enormity of these questions. It’s exciting and terrifying.
Mrs Linda Bryant from West Sussex
Was there anything before the big bang? What is space?
Jonathan Hawkins from Powys (Aged 15-25)
What triggered the big bang? If there was nothing beforehand, and as space is linked with time, that was also the beginning of time, how did it happen that all this matter appeared from nowhere and started expanding?
Ed Rixon from Berkshire (aged 15-25)
What existed before the Big Bang? I.e. what was it that went bang?
Rob Mansfield from Telford and Wrekin (Age: 55+ )
How did the universe begin? What was around BEFORE it began, and what triggered it to begin? Are or were there conscious particles that felt drawn to each other for company? Bringing the earth with them?
Leah J. Warren-Williams from Somerset (age 5-14)
