At night when you look up in the sky and see all the stars and how beautiful and bright they are do you think, I wonder how the stars and us came into existence? The creation of the universe and us happened with one bang, The Big Bang.
The Big Bang happened about 13.82 billion years ago. The Big Bang is still a mystery in many ways. We don’t know what existed before the Big Bang, if anything did exist. Back in time space was smaller than it was today.
The age of enlightenment connects to the Big Bang because people started to become curious of where they came from and why they are here on earth. They were very curious of how they came to existence. That is when Ptolemy started studying the stars and the universe. Then after him Copernicus.
