the gold you have in your bracelet, earring, or necklace? it was forged in the heart of a dying star much larger than our own, in a brilliant and enormous explosion that, for a moment, outshone the entire galaxy.
“I am wondering how there isn’t a centre of the universe and how the cosmic background radiation is [equally] far away everywhere we look. It seems to me that when the universe expands … there should be a place where it started expanding.”
We all know how explosions work: a tremendous release of energy causes a rapid outward expansion, and the most energetic particles get flung the farthest and at the greatest speeds. Things fly apart, spread out, and wind up a tremendous distance away. And within our Universe, nothing has ever released more energy than the event that started it all: the Big Bang. But the Big Bang itself wasn’t an explosion, even if we commonly think of it that way. Explosions have a center, and while there are explosions in the Universe that do display a center, the Big Bang itself wasn’t one. Instead, we need to take on the proper perspective if we want to understand how this all works, and expand not just the fabric of space, but also our minds.
