    The Big Bang in Pictures: Scientists Produce Computer Images of Particle Explosions Similar to the Greatest Ever Galactic Light Show

    It may look like a firework display in the night sky but these explosive images could be the closest we have yet come to snapshot from the birth of the universe itself.

    The computer generated images are the result of the 'big bang' experiments performed by scientists at CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider, in Geneva, Switzerland.

    In trying to determine exactly how the universe came into existence, scientists have been recreating sub-atomic explosions - like the one that may have happened around the time of the big bang - using atom-sized particles of lead.


    Eye-popping: When particles collide at the speed of light n a vacuum colder than -271 Celsius, they put on a spectacular show of light, heat and movement that form complex and often intricate patterns

    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    How can they recreate it if they have never observed the original "big bang"?
    They would need to in order to make a comparison and confirm their findings.

    They say "could be the closet". Are they implying that they have come close to photographing the birth before? Again, how can they possibly know this if they did not observe the original event first hand? How would they even begin to recognize even the residual traces of the "bang" I'm sure must be floating around the peripheral?

    If they do not have access to the substances or materials that created/caused the original big bang then how can they possibly recreate the event themselves using man-made tools?
