Hawking: Big Bang theory doesn't hold up

Hawking: Big Bang theory doesn't hold up, Stephen Hawking's Big Bang comments made at the California Institute of Technology on April 16 have people buzzing. Hawking has a way of generating lively discussions, and that was the case once again after his “The Origin of the Universe” lecture. Huffington Post shared the details.

Hawking spoke to a packed house Tuesday, with a second auditorium and lawn filled with those anxious to hear his lecture as well. Just last week, Hawking's words about Earth being doomed were generating buzz, and this time it was Hawking's Big Bang talk. The questions came from his outlining the scientific explanations for how the universe was created, and downplaying the potential of most theories put forth.

The physicist believes that “M-theory” is the only theory that fits what he has seen and studied. Hawking's Big Bang remarks were followed by his insistence that space exploration must continue in order to ensure the survival of humanity. Stephen Hawking is quite passionate about this, saying, “I don't think we will survive another thousand years without escaping our fragile planet.”

Whether one agrees with Hawking's Big Bang assertions or his passion for space exploration, there is no question that he poses questions that get people thinking and talking.
