his is a conceptual representation of the Big Bang that theoretically created space and time 13.7
billion years ago. The image is inaccurate in that the Big Bang was an 'explosion' of
space, not in
space, so it would not have been possible to regard it from this exterior
viewpoint. Still, it gets the point across and this is a popular image. This image appears in the
book The Big Bang
by Jared Pereira.
