Why is the big bang the most widely accepted explanation for the origin of the Universe? The Big Bang Theory (BBT) is accepted through its consistent predictions and then later proven discoveries that originate to the Big Bang. Cosmic background radiation (CBR) was predicted first by Alpher and Herman then later proven through ultra-sensitive antennae’s detectable in every direction. The abundance of hydrogen and helium was predicted through the Big Bang theory model despite the two most basic elements being considered a rarity on earth, and then verified by astronomers through the use of spectrographs seen today. The BBT’s acceptance as the origin for the universe lies most significantly on its ability to be proven through CBR. As an event, as enormous as the Big Bang would have left significant amounts of energy throughout the Universe. Predicted as far back as the 1940s in which Gamow first predicted that the immense heat from the Big Bang would not have dissipated like a normal explosion, but should still be present today.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
