The Big Beginning

Symphony of Science – 'The Big Beginning' (ft. Hawking, Sagan, Dawkins, Shears, Tyson)

Lyrics

I’d like to start if I may
With professor Hawking
How did the universe start?
With a big bang?

We observe that distant galaxies
Are moving away from us
They must have been closer together in the past

It was the beginning of the universe
And of time itself

Anything that happened before the big bang
Could not affect what happened after

The poetry of the expanding universe
The poetry of the complexity of life
We’re not normally equipped to understand
But science gives it to us

Science is opening your eyes
To the wonderfulness of what’s there
Science is opening your eyes
The poetry of the expanding universe

To come to you Carl Sagan
Could you help me by putting into layman’s terms
What was involved with this big bang

The early cosmos was everywhere
White hot
But then as time passed
The radiation expanded and cooled
Then little pockets of gas began to grow
Steadily brightening
We call them the galaxies

It was the beginning of the universe
And of time itself

Anything that happened before the big bang
Could not affect what happened after

The poetry of the expanding universe
The poetry of the complexity of life
We’re not normally equipped to understand
But science gives it to us

In the big bang we had equal amounts of matter and antimatter
And as soon as these met each other
They annihilated together
And this battle played out
Whilst the universe expanded
In its first minute of existence

And this battle played out
Whilst the universe expanded
In its first minute of existence

It’s not all that hard
To detect the big bang
All you need to do is change the channel
Until you have between two stations
About one percent of the snow and noise
Comes from the big bang itself
We’re all eavesdropping
On the birth pangs of the cosmos

It was the beginning of the universe
And of time itself

And this battle played out

Science is opening your eyes
To the poetry of the expanding universe

And this battle played out
Whilst the universe expanded
In its first minute of existence

It was the beginning of the universe
And of time itself
