Immediately following the state of the singularity, the universe entered a phase of rapid expansion and cooling, known as the Big Bang Expansion. This critical period signifies not an explosion in space but the very expansion of space itself, from an incomprehensibly dense point to the vast cosmos we observe today. The Big Bang Expansion describes the universe’s evolution from this hot, dense beginning to the formation of fundamental particles, atoms, and subsequently, the stars and galaxies that light up our night sky. It marks the unfolding of cosmic history, from the very fabric of space and time being woven into existence, to the complex structures that make up the universe 13.8 billion years later.
